Praise for Aubrey’s Storytelling

“Aubrey was absolutely magical, enchanting, and captivating. In fact, one of our Rabbis stated that he was the best storyteller that he has ever heard!”

Rachel Kamin, Director, Temple Israel Libraries & Media Center, West Bloomfield MI

 

“Aubrey Davis defies superlatives. His repertoire is amazing and his ability to hold the audience’s attention is legendary. He can tell stories to preschoolers and elementary school students as well as their parents….He is very creative and chooses his stories to match the audience in front of him. The adults (teachers, parents, older students) were as mesmerized as were the children. “

Penny Fransblow, Head: Norman Berman Children’s Library, Montreal, April 2012
