Snuggle together in your pajamas or get the kids into class… it is story-time.
Andrew will: lead the kids in playful engaging exercises, to help them settle and connect calmly. Read from his collection of conscious bedtime stories. Kids favorites include – The Laughing Witch, The Hug Who Got Stuck, The Boy Who Searched For Silence and The Elephant Who Tried to Tiptoe. Then it’s time to create a brand-new story as a group with quirky monsters, unique magical superpowers and heroic rescues!
"Andrew’s ability to connect deeply with our children, to engage in their ideas, and create amazing stories inspired all of us. As a talented author, Andrew’s stories get to their heart of humanity in language that children understand. We were absolutely thrilled to host Andrew Newman as our Writer-in-Residence at Bixby School. I can’t recommend Andrew highly enough!" -- Beth Suitor, Head of School, Bixby School!
"We bring speakers into our preschool every other month, and Andrew was such a favorite that we’ve invited him back multiple times. Our community of working parents is always looking for ways to maximize the time they have with their children. Andrew Newman brought a magical, inspiring evening to them, touching hearts and giving families tools for connection. Citing recent neuroscience and developmental psychology, Andrew provided us with suggestions for evening rituals involving mindfulness practices that are both achievable and meaningful for children. He wrapped up by gathering the children for a read-through of one of his enchanting and stunningly illustrated Conscious Bedtime Stories. Andrew will be one of the most uniquely engaging speakers your school will provide to your families." - Little Lyceum Montessori, Denver.
