What a wonderful family event we had during our book fair!  Our students were able to listen to exciting and riveting stories presented by Mrs. Kumar.  The children were thoroughly engrossed in the songs, tales and adventures presented to them in this exciting manner!  We cannot wait to have Mrs. Kumar with us again!

" . . . her gift for story telling has delighted children and adults alike at the community outreach programs we hold during the summers. She goes all out, coming in costume and carrying props and goodies! Her background in theater is evident as she moves from character to character throughout a story. Her 'performance' is always a hit!"

"Debra Kumar is a master at creating a variety of characters!  With a slight change of voice and facial expression she immediately commands the attention of the listener.  I highly recommend her!"

"Once upon a time...

Debra Kumar is an excellent storyteller who weaves tales that completely captivate her audiences!  It was a joy to watch hundreds of children get lost in the moment as she told her stories.  Because they were so thoroughly captivated and entertained while listening to her tales, I highly recommend Debra Kumar, she is an excellent storyteller!"

". . . Did you ever hear tale of

Old Noah's Ark


All covered with pitch

and gopher wood bark


How the Devil slipped in

as quiet as a mouse


Which he turned himself into

To invade Noah's house . . . "
