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.

Mr. Sheridan is exceptional! When he comes to our school, the children make cookies for him and draw pictures that they think he will like. He truly brings out the magic of the spoken word. The children act out and repeat parts of stories that he’s told when he’s been with us. All of us—students and faculty alike—look forward to his return.

The show was a tremendous success. From the moment that Phil opened the first book, “Cock-a-Moo-Moo” the kids were captivated. Phil selected wonderfully illustrative and entertaining books for the children. 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. I think “Giraffes Can't Dance” is my new favorite book. It is a wonderful story that has such an elevating message for kids.
