Shawnee Public Library
Stephen Fite’s high-energy songs and skits have entertained hundreds of thousands of children across the country.
And now, he’s bringing those musical sounds to the Shawnee Public Library at 2 p.m. Tuesday, June 25 for a chance for children to “Dive in and Dig It!” during this year’s Summer Reading Program.
Fite has performed children’s music since the early 1980s, with his work geared primarily to ages 3 to 7. While his start in the business wasn’t necessarily glamorous, he’s developed into an award-winning performer.
“The short and sweet of it is, I needed a job and my grandfather had this company,” he said of Melody House, an Oklahoma City-based company specializing in children’s books and music. “I started off in the shipping department of the company, and he said ‘since you’re doing this, why don’t you start writing tunes.”
