Programs

Every school & library program through Funco Productions promotes reading and library use. Studies show that children who read for pleasure score higher on tests as a group when compared to those who don’t read for pleasure. Mick Corley uses the general title for his programs of “Imagination Station”. The theme title is added to this.

“Ships Ahoy: Read!”  
Come on aboard with Mick and Perriwinkle for a reading adventure based on the Texas library reading theme of “Sail Away with Books”. In this program, children use their imagination to travel into the world of ships, pirates and other lands fueled by the books they read. Music, magic, puppets and stories help them on their journey to show them the knowledge from reading books will take them on an adventure around the world without even having to leave home.

The Mad Scientist
