“Phil's storytime is an extraordinary experience. He can spew out words faster than the speed of light. He can make time stand still. He can make kids and adults hang on every word. He is Mill Valley Library’s Super Storyteller.” Anji Brenner, City Librarian, Mill Valley Public Library
“When Phil reads, or rather, acts out, Caps for Sale, the monkeys are real! Listening to him is more fun than a barrel of monkeys.” Marilyn Wronsky, Children’s Librarian, Corte Madera Public Library
“Phil is an excellent storyteller. He captures the attention of his audience with strong dynamics, sound effects, and by bringing forth the emotion of the characters and stories. His welcoming and kind energy encourages young children to feel relaxed and at ease, while remaining captivated by the material. He chooses stories that have a message, allowing children to learn their own values by thinking on the story. Phil brings back the ancient and dying art of storytelling.” Cynthia, Fairfax CA, mother of 2
“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
