WHAT BOOKERS SAY:
Dear Harlynne: What a wonderful job you did yesterday! Thanks for being part of the Family Holiday Festival program and for adding such a wonderful element to it. I heard nothing but compliments from the children and their parents. Again, thanks for a superb performance! It was a delight to listen to you.
Wes Brustad, San Diego Museum of Art
We really enjoyed your Holiday Stories from Around the World. You had a wonderful variety of tales, and the use of origami and string made your stories particularly visual. I could tell by the active participation of the children that you really had their attention.
