Interactive readings with PowerPoint 
Members of the audience dress in our kimonos and pantomime as we read.
Shadow Puppetry 
If you can darken your room, we can set up our puppet stage and present Sunny's own Japanese folk tales.  If time allows, we can work with your group to create and perform their own simple shadow puppets. This presentation is most effective with groups of 5-50 children.
Traditional Japanese Toys 
Your audience will experience ancient toys that did not require batteries or electricity to fascinate children for hours.
Drawing/Manga demonstrations and Question/answer Sessions
Write your name in Japanese ... or have Sunny create a name poster for you!
Daruma dolls, coloring, origami, & more
