Mr. Blue Shoes

Mr BlueShoes
Kids
I have seen at least 15 years of programs at the CAC and this one was the best I can remember. Mr. Blue Shoes was so good with the kids. I did not see one bored or restless student, but all were listening and following any of the things he wanted them to do   He had a great lesson; I learned several new things myself, and I am sure that many of the kids will want to know more and listen more to the blues!
