Orange County Children’s Book Festival

Storytellers Stage

One of the most popular of the Festival’s five stages is the PBS-SoCal Storytellers Stage.  Appearing on this stage are professional storytellers from the South Coast Storytellers Guide, authors of young children’s books and entertainment for toddlers to young readers.  The Storyteller Stage is coordinated by Lisa Day, author of Penelope’s Corner.

PBS-SoCal also sponsors the appearance of famous storybook characters at the Festival such as Curious George, The Cat in the Hat, Sid the Science Kid, and Buddy the Dinosaur, just to name a few.  Be sure to visit the Storyteller Stage area and the PBS-SoCal booth to learn the latest in young children’s entertainment programs and to have your child’s picture taken with Costumed Characters at the Festival.
