“Making melodies in little hearts”.
Carolyn Anne Venable, with a background in music, has offered her talents to the less fortunate around the world, especially in orphanages. “Granny Vee”, as she is affectionately known, travels with a smile, with a song, and with her retinue of cuddly characters. For many years, she and her hand puppets have delighted children in schools and other venues with “hippity-hoppin’” fun. Her original music has been presented at preschool teacher conferences including Texas Headstart. “Granny Vee” hopes to gladden the hearts and broaden the minds of precious children worldwide.
