“You are an amazing storyteller with the ability to captivate your audience of all ages.” Isabel Chica, Director of Children’s Programs, Miami Lighthouse Foundation for the Blind and Visually Impaired

“Amy Kohan constructed a special story-telling presentation of The Nutcracker, which mesmerized a standing-room-only group of vision-impaired children and their parents.”  Miami City Ballet, Miami, FL

 “You packed so much into your time with us.  The children got a taste of the different ways to tell a story and you had such an animated style!”  The Barn, Educational Program, Coconut Grove, FL

“My students were mesmerized. The addition of guitar playing and puppet characters helped to engross the kids even further.”  
Rebecca Sher, Teacher, Framingham, MA











“Amy provided exposure for our young children to reading in an engaging, fun and creative way. Amy integrated puppets and music into her story times,  getting the mothers involved as well.  We greatly appreciated Amy’s energy, spirit and time here at Lotus House Women’s Shelter.”
Dr. Katherine Pollack, Director of Child and Family Services, The Lotus House Women’s Shelter, The Sundari Foundation, Inc., Miami, FL

“Amy’s stories seamlessly wove math and literacy concepts into tales filled with humor, movement and heart. The children’s response to Amy’s visit can be captured in the single word uttered by one of our most reluctant students.  When Amy was finished, the student simply said, “Again.”
Lauren Oliver, Teacher, Reading Specialist, Wellesley MA
