Youth & Family Storytelling Programs
"The children were enthralled and I was able to dovetail your lesson
into a writing assignment that I was planning to do.
The oral tradition truly enhances students listening skills.
We should take advantage of it more often."
Carroll Martin, Educator for more than 30 years, Burton Valley Elementary School (Lafayette, CA)
"You had them in the palm of your hand.
They were mesmerized."
Reading Specialist. East Silver Spring Elementary School (Silver Spring, MD)
