From my work directing Animal Farm. A note from the play's adaptor, Ian Wooldridge. (1/18)

From my talk to the GaGa Sisterhood (of devoted grandmothers) on storytelling activities with children and the role of folktales in their lives:

Donne Davis, Founder of GaGa Sisterhood (GaGaSisterhood.com) (5/15/16)

  "It was such a pleasure to meet you and watch you in action yesterday. You are such an animated storyteller. I loved watching the GaGas watch you - they were all mesmerized. You shared wonderful content and so many fun stories. I know you inspired all of us grandmas to go out and find folktales to tell our grandchildren. The interactive game was a lot of fun, too.
     Thank you again for all the valuable information, the excellent handouts and your incredible energy."  



From parents of children in the Sunnyvale Library troupe:

Dakshata Talekar (1/29/16):

"Enid is an amazing teacher with a lot of experience and in-depth knowledge of the art of storytelling and public speaking. She is very patient and encouraging with her students. She guided the kids' group at the Sunnyvale Library so well! No wonder the recent storytelling festival (they performed in Palo Alto) was a huge success. My son (age 8) loved and enjoyed her storytelling workshop.And I see a lot of improvement in his public speaking skills. I would love to recommend her to all parents."

Lakshmi Mudiapur (1/29/16):

Mrs. Davis is a wonderful storyteller and even a better teacher. It was a joy to watch her train a diverse set of children to learn and to love storytelling. The kids learned a very useful skill and had a lot of fun while doing it. My son (age 7) attended his first workshop with her recently and can't wait for the next one to start! I was so impressed with it that I signed up for the next adult storytelling workshop.
