When you're a child you don't really think... cos you like to live like a child. Doesn't really seem you're just going to be an adult. Like time flies by and you just want... to, like, stay as a child, but you just enjoy things, the way it goes. Award‐winning writer Chris Goode asked thirty 8‐10 year olds to talk about their lives, their thoughts, their world. In Monkey Bars their words are spoken by adults. Not adults playing children, but adults playing adults, in adult situations. Monkey Bars is a revelatory verbatim show that is funny, touching and endlessly surprising.
Two exciting adventures starring a Tribe of friends! Why is Copper Pie bunking off school at lunchtime? When the other Tribers find out, they can't help getting involved and they're soon in trouble (again). Then it's the school camping trip, where Team Tribe build rafts, tell jokes, race rubber ducks and finally face the scary assault course. Will Fifty manage to conquer his fear? It's non-stop for Tribe.
You ask, whats wrong with the monkey bars? Well, when theyre the only option, and the line is longer than the girls room, you tell me. Our playground is terrible! But what can we do to help? Three friends work together to build their school a new playground. The entire school helps out as they use their unique talents to make their school a better place for them and for generations to come. Some students think its a great idea; others oppose it. Will they be able to overcome their differences and make unlikely friends for the sake of their school? This is a story of persistence, courage, friendship, strength, and hope, mixed in with a whole bunch of silliness. You will see that anything you can think of is possible if you just put in the effort and believe in yourself.
Resiliency and a Positive Outlook Win Out ... Why would a mother tell doctors that her young son was mentally and physically ill when he wasn't? This startling memoir recounts the son's difficult and unusual childhood journey that included extended stays in a mental institution and juvenile detention center, and abuse when he was at home. And yet, he overcame these challenges, rebuilt his damaged self-confidence and enjoys a fulfilling life. This story is about transforming adversity, duplicity and heartache to resiliency, clarity and happiness.
For anyone who has had the pleasure of raising, teaching, or being around children, Monkey Bar Adventure opens your eyes to a wonderful new way to forge a bond with children based on a deeper relationship with God. As parents and caregivers, we experience a variety of different moments with our children. Those "monster" moments nearly convince us that God sent them with the primary purpose of punishing us. There are the funny "monkey" moments at which we laugh and are amazed at the thoughts in those tiny little heads. But it's in the treasured "angel" moments that we see Jesus himself. During these times, when we look at them as Jesus did, we realize that God is the only perfect parent. He desires the same behaviors from us that we want from our children. Learn how to become better parents by first becoming better children of God. If you want to know the truth about Jesus calling the children to him, then come join the Monkey Bar Adventure.
