“Phil is such an expert storyteller that young children, ages 2-5, sit enraptured for 45 minutes. I've never seen that before.”
Barbara Berry, parent volunteer, Francisco Child Care Center
“Phil is a master storyteller, fabulously dramatic, knowing his stories so well that he really acts them out rather than reads them. …Equally important, he is giving the children the gift of oral tradition, a gift they will surely remember when they become adults.”
Old Firehouse School, Mill Valley
“It warms my heart when my 2 year old daughter, Riley, asks me if we are going to the library to see ‘Bill’ (we’re working on the pronunciation of your name) and to get new books. What an incredible family tradition you have helped us foster. You storytelling is a gift and I thank you so much for sharing it with us.”
Alison M. Skrinar, Mill Valley CA
“Whenever Phil tells stories at Fairfax, both the children and their parents love his performance. His acting skills and sense of humor are a delight to all who attend!”
Carolyn Potter, Children’s Librarian, Fairfax Public Library

I've become wanton as I wither.
Because old age
is not a time for growing.
It is a time of leaving
of letting go
unbridling all the love
I've held in check since childhood
and sending it to places where hearts
are dry. I do it wantonly, before I die.
When next you see a withered leaf
fluttering like a newborn in a tree,
stop and say hello: that's me.
and if you're dry, come close
and put your lips to me.
I'll send you love, and you send love to me.
~ Phil Sheridan | October 2014
