The Story Behind Picture Book Musicals:

Booksicals are beautifully illustraed

Booksicals was founded in 2009 by Los Angeles children’s author and musical theater composer Susan Chodakiewitz.  “My mission to unlock the power of a child’s vivid imaginations led me to create picture books that kids could sing along to and perform.”

As a frequent presenter at schools Susan discovered something important. “In all my school presentations I brought costumes and props for the kids to role play. Kids were so enthusiastic  to become characters from the book and bring the story to life. With all the “theatrical” excitement that kids felt at my presentations I realized that I need to provide kids with a tool to perform the books for their school.”  With the release of  Picture Book Musical Theater Kits Booksicals now provides teachers and kids with the tools to put on their own Picture Book Musical shows in their classroom or for the whole school.
