Storytelling and Author Presentations
Aubrey tells tales to people of all ages. He tells stories from his books together with other spellbinding and often hilarious tales that have endured. These bottomless stories traveled across borders and through time, provoking thought and calling to what was best within us. People often heard them repeatedly throughout their lives. This gave them opportunities to understand more with each telling and as their life experience grew.
Aubrey adapts his programs to suit the listener. With younger children, he tells tales that are simple and enticing together with lively poems, chants and language games. For older audiences he tells more challenging, often puzzling tales. With Jewish audiences he tells the folk tales, legends and fables unique to Jewish culture and those they share with other peoples, flavored with a dash of Jewish spice.
Aubrey is available for virtual author and storytelling visits via Skype. To arrange for a face-to-face school presentation, please email Aubrey for rates and details.
Humans are storytelling creatures. At all times and places people have told stories to communicate, understand and learn. It’s our nature to do so. Aubrey’s workshops build on innate, often unrecognized abilities to teach participants how to tell, write or learn through oral narrative. He adapts and designs workshops to suit the audience.
Here are some reviews of Aubrey’s work…
Rachel Kamin Dir., Temple Israel Libraries & Media Center, W. Bloomfield MI
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!
Qualicum Beach Elementary School, B.C.
As a visiting storyteller/author I think you can never know what sort of impact you made. As the teacher of this group, let me assure you that the experience of being with and listening to you will remain with these children forever. Thank you.
Jocelyn Harrison, Teacher Librarian D.A. Morrison Middle School, Toronto
What an incredible way to close DA’s Authors Week. Aubrey Davis is the most powerful storyteller these kids have ever heard.
Aubrey, It was a real pleasure to host your set. In all the children’s sessions that I have attended over the last five years, I have never seen such captivation or delight. Thank you for your tales and your energy and enthusiasm.
Fifth Grade Student, Toronto
I could tell that everyone enjoyed you coming to our school because when you left everyone was still talking about the way you told the folk tales. After I publish a book I will make sure you are on the Thank You list.
Bambi Katz, Principal, Holy Blossom Temple Religious School, Toronto
Your love & enthusiasm for our tradition help to make the stories come alive for the students.

I’ve seen many author presentations, but he is the best. Bring him back!
