Making Books Sing’s "IF YOU REALLY LOVE POLAR BEARS" New York Public Library Summer 2012 Tour

Making Books Sing, the NYC-based theater company and arts-in-education non-profit that promotes children’s literacy and social development has partnered with New York Public Library for their summer tour.


Making Books Sing’s IF YOU REALLY LOVE POLAR BEARS tells the story of Patchy, a little boy who loves polar bears and learns about the important role he can play saving the earth. The 30-minute performance incorporates music, puppetry and physical comedy to educate children about climate change and its impact on animal habitats. ConEdison sponsored a five-borough tour in winter 2011 to family audiences at various cultural institutions across New York City.

Performances of IF YOU REALLY LOVE POLAR BEARS are FREE to families and best for children ages 3 and up. The tour will include 22 New York Public Library branches in the Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island
