“Phil has exceptional rapport with the children. Several parents have commented on the joy he brings to each session and how delighted they are to see him each week. We are so happy he is with us!” Mary Richardson, Head Librarian, Sausalito Public Library
“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
“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
“I am an audiobook listener. As such, much of my enjoyment of a book rests on the narrator. …By chance, I picked up Deceit by James Siegel. I'm not even through the first disc yet, but I had to let you know that you are a great new discovery for me. Heck, I'm 56 years old, but I might try to find Yertle the Turtle and Goodnight Moon. I appreciate narrators that not only can do voices, but can evoke personality and emotion. Here's hoping to hear more from you… Also, it's wonderful what you are doing with the story–telling for kids. They are absolutely the hardest ones to fool. Thank You” Paul Rath
