Testimonials and Reviews
Check out Robin at Pottstown Elementary School
"While he was speaking, the room was silent and the intense expressions on everyone's faces showed that they were living within, rather than just watching, Robin's stories."
--Dr. Maureen Stanton, Academy of Natural Sciences
"Robin awakened the imaginations of my fourth graders with his enthralling tall tales and delightful stories of growing up in the Pennsylvania wilderness. They were thrilled to don authentic frontier clothing and amazed to learn about the hours of labor that went into making them. Robin truly brought history to life for my students!"
--Jennifer Todd, Humanities Teacher, Hillcrest Elementary School
"Robin Moore ranks with the best of today's professional storytellers. His ability to portray characters with the subtle use of voice and gesture as well as his talent for involving audiences is second to none on the East Coast."
--Kenneth Goldstein, Chairman, Department of Folklore
University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA
"Robin is a true artist of the spoken word. I have never seen a group of students so completely captivated by a performer. They were riveted on his every move and expression. I have a long waiting list for his 'Maggie' books"
--Barbara Murphy, Librarian, Rogers Elementary School
"He performed magic inside every child, and beyond that, taught them a skill of imaging which will enrich their lives forever."
--Reina Gapczynski, Principal, Greenwich Elementary School
"There is not a year that goes by that I do not share Robin's story collections with my students. Without a doubt, the students' two favorites are 'The Cherry Tree Buck' and 'Hairy Woman'. That's all it takes and the books never return to the shelves until the end of the school year."
--Elizabeth McChesney, Greenville Area Schools
"Robin Moore's historical fiction novels and collections of Pennsylvania folklore are among the top read-aloud books selected by PA school children and their teachers."
--Keystone State Reading Association
“Robin’s performances can only be described by superlatives. He does not just entertain students. He interacts with them in a way that leaves each child with a memorable experience. The spirit, ethnusiasm and imagination which characterize Robin’s skill are present in the school long after he has left. What better gifts can a storyteller give his audience?”
