Every Who in Who-Ville

Every Who in Who-Ville by Cindyb

I would just like to say how much I enjoyed performing How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss (aka Theodor Geisel) to such a receptive audience! Thank you for the opportunity to do my Boris Karloff impression, while reciting my favorite holiday book! The Teen Librarian, Nicole S. helped project images from the book and was an excellent elf.

As you know the “Grinch” hates Noise, Noise, Noise, Noise, so when the audience chose musical instruments and played their little hearts out, the Grinch was writhing on the floor. My great niece, Samantha, charmingly played “Cindy Lou Who,” who was lied to, patted, and sent back to bed. Her friend, Grace, enthusiastically played “Max” the dog, with a horn tied upon her head. The “Grinch” danced around the room to the song “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” which perhaps was a little too much, for he was quite winded, so he took the time to canoodle with babies and toddlers, who were not in the least afraid.  At the end we all made a big circle and held hands and sang. Everyone participated as “Who’s” and there was such a merry and joyous feeling in the room. I think everyone’s heart grew in Who-ville that night, the tall and the small, without any presents at all.

“Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more.”

The “Grinch” treats were served, many photos taken, and appreciative comments abounded from the audience. I can’t wait for next year!
