I'm not sure what prompted this week's cartoon. I guess it's some kind of deep seated fear of being embarrassed in front of a large group of people, or children in this case...something that probably goes back to my own childhood and fear of public speaking.
At my library we have what's called Story Stop and although I have nothing against reading and singing to kids, I don't think I'll be participating anytime soon. I'll leave that to the professionals. :)
