Helping celebrate twenty-five years of Blue Ribbon Kid’s Day in Waushara County, children’s recording artist, Tom Pease, will take to the stage at 10am for a concert filled with song, movement and laughter. Tom is a Wisconsin favorite, “Tom Pease is one of the finest children’s performers I have ever had perform at our library. His energy and humor draw in listeners of all ages, children and adults alike. Tom’s repertoire includes his own compositions, folk classics and a variety of multicultural songs. His song topics span the gamut from silly songs like “Bellybutton” to the touching, like his wonderful “Love Grows”. Tom likes to include motions, sign language and Spanish into his shows, which has everyone’s brain working in multiple ways.” The concert is sponsored by the Wautoma Area Kiwanis.
