"Your love of reading and learning new information through books came through loud and clear." The way you combined mime movements with verbal commentary was very successful. It was a perfect show for a library!
You gave a whole new dimension to the art by adding a brief verbal introduction to each of the 26 short alphabet pieces, and the inclusion of lots of volunteers was a great way to keep the large audience involved.
From A to Z, you had the kids and parents fascinated and thoroughly entertained. "Thank you for the outstanding show - we hope to have you back soon." Mary Proudfoot, Librarian, Brookfield Library, CT
