Paul Borgese and The Strawberry Traffic Jam

Paul Borgese is a Parents’ Choice award-winning author and performer. He has been writing children’s books, performing to classes around the country and working with teachers to create fun and educational children’s programs for over 10 years.

He is the author of three children’s books: A Sunday Stroll, When Fish Go Peopling andHunting for the Whipperwoo, all of which have won him critical acclaim and various scholarships and awards. Every month, this site features a new selection from Paul’s award-winning poems.

As an outgrowth of his educational consulting, Paul also has written several special reports — including his very well-received 27 Ways To Get Your Child Hooked On Books — all of which are available absolutely free on this site.

Paul donates part of the proceeds from all of his performances, as well as book and music sales, to The Rainforest Foundation, which also is supported by other musicians, including Ricky Martin, Elton John, Billy Joel, Sting, Tony Bennett and James Taylor. The Rainforest Foundation helps protect rainforest environments around the world. Paul believes that preserving wildlife habitats such as the rainforest makes the world a better place for our children (and also for the monkeys who love to sing and swing in the trees). Paul also participates in fundraisers for many other schools and non-profit organizations.

Paul began his writing and performing career while working as a volunteer at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. After receiving his Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Pennsylvania, Paul was awarded the prestigious British Marshall Scholarship. He studied theater and world literature and received his Master of Arts in Literature from Trinity College, Cambridge University in England, which is the alma mater of A.A. Milne, the famous creator of Winnie-the-Pooh.

He also holds a Bachelor of Science in economics from the Wharton School; a Master of Governmental Administration from the Fels Center of Government, University of Pennsylvania; and a Master of Business Administration from New York University.

Paul currently performs at schools around the country and has been a guest on several radio shows, including Kids’ Corner, one of the top-rated children’s radio programs in the country.
