For those of you who have spent years reading bed time stories to your children, you’re in good company with Joan Cusack. She owes her storytelling talents to 6 years of reading childrens’ literature to her little darlings. It’s called “Peep and the Big Wide World.”
Joan Cusack, a Hollywood actress, has found another niche within the business, providing voice-over narration for a popular childrens’ series called “Peep and the Big Wide World“, a program principally funded by the National Science Foundation.
In addition to her work on Peep, Joan provided the voice of the character Jessie in Toy Story 2 and also voiced a character in Chicken Little, quickly making her a hit at both the box office and with her two children, Dylan and Miles.
Most of Joan’s inspiration as a voice actor comes from making a difference in the lives of the audiences she reaches, for example, she chooses to align herself with educational and morally sound animated programming. As a parent and a voice actor, she is driven by the possibilities that spring forth from her role as a storyteller, nurturing the innate curiosity of children, helping them develop important skills for lifelong learning.
Have any of you had the great opportunity of narrating for a preschool series? If so, leave a comment and promote the show that you worked on.
Looking forward to hearing all about it!
