Adam Miller

Program Description: Participation opportunities abound during Uncle Mike's Pint Size Polkas programs! Your young patrons will be invited to display hats while the audience guesses the corresponding theme-related jobs. The audience will have fun answering age and theme-appropriate trivia questions and will be encouraged to check out books that go with them! Catchy sing-along polka songs and a quick round of "Name that Tune" further complement the program theme, and of course, no one goes home without doing the "Chicken Dance" and a special polka version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes." An optional video segment will even teach your patrons how to do the polka in a minute and a half! Plenty of singing, dancing, and education have been making Uncle Mike's Pint Size Polkas show fun for the whole family at nearly 1,000 libraries in 22 states since 2009!
