Thats according to the old bird herself, who says shes getting out of the childrens storytelling business for good because it just doesnt pay enough.
Almost 63-years-old, Barbara Garro, who for the past 10 years has gone by the name Mother Goose and tried to make a living through ventriloquism and writing and telling childrens stories, says, Mother Goose has to eat too.
Prior to storytelling, Garro was a journalist, but decided to take on the role as Goose after a bad accident made her realize, I couldnt be a corporate muckity-muck anymore.
The worlds loss of childrens literature stands to be someones gain though, because Garro says shes selling her library of stories shes amassed from around the world, audio and video tapes and puppets.
The whole kit-and-caboodle will cost around $1,500.
From now on Garro says shell focus on her art and poetry.
