Dan Wardell, guest narrator
Dan Wardell is producer and host of the IPTV KIDS Clubhouse at Iowa
Public Television. His adventures take him to schools and libraries across
the state, teaching kids to turn off their TVs, to go outside and play, to
eat healthy food, to use their imaginations, and most importantly, to read
a good book.
Wardell's Reading Road Trip is an exclusive 71-stop library tour each
summer that has provided him the opportunity to perform for over 126,000
kids and grownups during the past nine years.
All of Dan's travels, in addition to his "Healthy Minutes"
and IPTV Kids Clubhouse segments can be found on the Internet at www.iptv.org/dantastic.
