What people have said about LuAnn Adams' Storytelling...
"It is your energy and spirit that enabled the children to learn and have fun!"
-Karen Cummins, Curator of Education, NJ State Museum
"What an enchanting morning you gave us at Mariemont Elementary last week! Your stories were delightful as well as thought-provoking. I had students and teachers stopping me in the hallway to let me know how wonderful you were..."
-Joy Miller, PTA President, Mariemont Elementary, OH
"LuAnn Adams has presented stories for children at our school for several years, and as always, she fascinates and charms her audience. We have had other storytellers through the years, but it is LuAnn who the children thoroughly enjoy and specifically request to come back... She has the highest recommendations from me, the staff, and most importantly, the children."
-Stella Hennigan, Principal, Lincoln School, NJ
"Most recently the Cincinnati Playhouse hired LuAnn to tour her collection of stories... I watched as hundreds of children sat spellbound, inhaling LuAnn's stories that were entertaining, exciting, inspiring and relevant. It is this latter quality that pleased me most about LuAnn's work. No story was a "throw away" tale. Whether a story about bravery, self-esteem, friendship, or survival, each one had a resonance to the children themselves. They all held some kind of insight into the children's own lives and what they might be doing on their own individual "Adventure of Life." To make the world, characters and circumstances of a story come so vibrantly alive through the art of storytelling, and have them speak to a child's own experience, is a marvelous talent that LuAnn magically manifests in her performances."
-Madeline Pabis, Education Director, The Cincinnati Playhouse, OH
"Our diverse audiences were thrilled with LuAnn's engaging varied storytelling. In fact, the children would not let her stop -- asking for yet another story. Her warmness, enthusiasm and genuine interest in the children were evident in all of her performances. Each program felt fresh and each encouraged the listeners to find more stories in the books available to them at the Library. "
-Amy Banister, Head of Public Relations, The Public Library of Cincinnati, OH
"Once again, Holiday Lights has come and gone and we have had nothing but raves from employees and guests alike about your performances. You certainly have a magic about you that captures both young and old. I always get a kick out of seeing the parents as well as their children hanging on every word and singing along. On behalf of the Wildlife Conservation Society, I would like to thank you for helping to make our event the success that it is... I would personally recommend your storytelling to any venue."
-Robert DeSimone, Event Marketing, The Bronx Zoo/Wildlife Conservation Society, NYC
"While watching Ms. Adams perform, you can relax and watch a gifted performer enchant her audience."
-Ann Nancy Fogel, Recreation Therapy Ctr., New York Foundling Hospital
