Thanks for your interest in the art of storytelling!

As a performer I have reinvented myself several times (Whispers the Clown, Magician, Puppeteer, Mother Goose, Granny Magic and Storyteller Glenda Bonin). These new directions have taken place in response to a need to pivot and redirect my talent, energy, and interests to reach new audiences and grow. I am currently developing a new body of work relating to the Westward Movement and Arizona History. This is not to say that I am no longer available to the audiences I have served in the past. This is simply a new direction and focus of my energy as I continue to grow as a performer and storyteller.  



I love it when I can do a science experiment to help me understand why things are the way they are, and that’s what science does.
Science means knowledge, and that’s a good thing to have, right?
I’ve found a few interesting experiments to go along with my latest Library Summer Reading Program for the FIZZ, BOOM, READ! theme.

This is the first in a series of six science projects, and each of experiment comes with complete instructions so you can duplicate what I discovered.
(Duplicate is a word they use a lot in science.) It means that if you do an experiment and learn something, it has to be something others can do to and check the learning for accuracy. So I hope you will duplicate my experiment and we can be scientists together.

Let’s Make FiZZY Lemon Soda!!

To do this, be sure to ask an adult to help you locate the following items:

One lemon, a measuring cup, a drinking glass, some water, 1 teaspoon of baking soda and some sweetener (because your fizzy lemon soda will not taste sweet without sugar of some other kind of sweetener).
