2019 Library Summer Reading Program
"Space is the Place; Songs, Puppets and Fun!"

Rick Goldin's "Space is the Place" music and puppet program is an upbeat and entertaining family concert that fits in well with the
2019 library summer reading theme "A Universe of Stories".

It includes songs about books, reading, and libraries, and songs about astronauts, space travel and the stars and planets. It also features
appearances by Rick's singing animal puppets Henry the Horse, Quackleberry Duck and others.

Rick's children's concerts feature singing and song-leading of original and familiar songs (with guitar accompaniment), movement songs, child-participation, and lots of silliness and fun for the whole family.
