Bookworms, rejoice! We have just the thing for literary lovers and avid readers. Provide Grasshopper with the title of your child or group's favorite book(s), and Librarian Lisa will design a custom experience that journeys through the beloved book's themes and scenes. This custom experience will include reading, discussion, crafts, and games, all centered around one's favorite book. Librarian Lisa, with her expansive knowledge of children's literature, will also incorporate some other stories and books that line up well with the favorite tales chosen. For all reading levels, this experience can also be booked as a multi-week series.
Teacher Lisa’s favorite sound is a child’s laugh. She worked for over 20 years as a children’s librarian in Denver Metro public libraries. She's raised two children and is a new grandma. Lisa loves reading, playing, singing, doing crafts, laughing and learning with kids. She believes lifelong learning begins in childhood and aims to learn something new every day. She did her first skydive for her 55th birthday!
Lisa holds a Master's degree in Library and Information Science (MLIS) from the University of Denver, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from George Mason University. She has had coursework and training in working with children, worked as a nanny in Austria, and is an oral storyteller volunteer through the Spellbinders organization. Her hobbies include postcrossing (combining the internet with postcards!), children's literature, traveling, and learning about world cultures.
Lisa is vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19.
