Her talent as a storyteller was definitely evident by the rapt attention and interaction from the kids. It isn't always easy to get such complete participation with a teen audience and she did it. It was magical!
Cynthia Smerud, Director SIMS School

A very positive experience-making components of language arts come alive even for my shy students! I noticed 2 of my terribly shy students smiling-quietly participating behind their hands. Students were highly engaged. All answers were accepted and sincerely appreciated. Our story sessions and discussions carried over to other stories as well. Patti was exceptionally engaging. My students eagerly looked forward to her lessons.

I learned we are never too old to enjoy hearing a story, and especially enjoyed the part about putting a new up-to-date spin on fairy tales, such as the little Red Riding Hood story! We had a great workshop with you!

Patti is fun to listen to. She delighted her audience at Juvenile Hall.

This is the first time I've seen Patti and I have to say that she is very, very animated. I really enjoyed her use of props. Her enthusiasm really captured the kids tonight.

Patti Christensen has to be one of the most energetic, fun storytellers Iíve had the pleasure to listen to! Patti immerses herself in the story, providing an experience for all her listeners, young and old alike.
Linda King Pruitt, Storyteller

Patti has the gift of comic timing that is God-given! When I saw her do Stephanie's Ponytail, I knew she lived her characters and helped us to live them, too! She is the Best!!!
Carolyn Cardamis, teacher

Your performances are rich with verbal pictures that make the stories come alive, jump off the page. The way you integrate the use of props to enhance the stories is really great! The thought of seeing you tell, even if I've heard the story, is exciting, yours is an exciting performance and full of authenticity of feeling and life, especially a Zest for Life.
