Description
The story begins in the1920’s with narrative from a childhood friend who tells of Red’s antics on the streets of Vincennes selling newspapers and in the school where he quits after the 8th grade to pursue entertainment. The story continues with his first girlfriend Velma, a teen in Vincennes. She helps us to see his growth through medicine shows, theater, showboats, and vaudeville. The piece concludes with his first wife and co-writer Edna Stillwell, as they travel the Walkathon circuit in the depression era. They write many skits together, but the “How to Eat a Doughnut” bit launches Red into Hollywood and the hearts of a nation. This storytelling performance was researched and written and performed by storyteller Stephanie Holman for an Indiana History Center and Storytelling Arts of Indiana commission in 2014.

The moving finger by AGATHA CHRISTIE.Third entry in the miss marple series.Fairly enjoyable read BUT if you have to choose go with the HERCULE POIROT books.They are MUCH BETTER
Review
I love how this encourages not only adults to read, but children as well. The importance of reading and using ones imagination need to still be cultivated in children.

Love this program! Our son is excited to have earned his prize (as am I) - we'll pick it up soon. He has not only been reading to me to earn it, but I have been reading some stories to him at bedtime. It is music to my ears to hear him say "just one more chapter, Mommy, PLEASE????" How can I say no to THAT?
