“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
“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 made his debut for Bread & Roses by reading stories for our young friends at the Canal Alliance Daycare. He is a versatile and experienced actor. He uses his acting skills (voices, movement, facial expressions) to make his stories come alive. When the kids arenít hanging on his every word, they’re joining in and laughing with him.” Kurt Huget, Bread & Roses, Corte Madera
“He is very animated, and enthralled the children with the incredible selection of books that he chose. All of the stories that he read had an inspiring and meaningful message in them.” Elizabeth Reuss, Bread & Roses, Northern California
