Jungle Jill and the Jaybirds are children's enertainers that weave puppets and music into their performances. The content of their material includes environmental messages and bilingual (English/Spanish) elements. They use various interactive techniques to keep the children engaged including actions and parts to sing. Their current programs are lots of fun and especially suited to preschool and lower elementary school aged children. They have appeared regularly over the past three years in a variety of venues including Nutty Brown Cafe Children's Nights, Ruta Maya Sunday Morning Children's Program, The Highland Mall (for train safety programs), The Pecan Street Festival and various libraries.
