Are you available for children’s birthday parties?
I am, but I do encourage parents to consider the option of donating a storytelling performance to their child’s classroom, instead. It's cheaper, it’s a wonderful gift to an educational institution, and it may possibly even be taken as a charitable contribution. In-home party storytelling events can be difficult, as there are often many distractions: toys, food, television, grown-ups socializing in earshot of the event. In a distraction-free area, where everyone is supporting the goals of storytelling, an amazing time can be had—and I welcome the chance to be a part of it.
