"The Cohasset Library highly recommends Leigh and Friends for a dynamic puppet story time. The addition of the puppets adds another experiential layer for our young emerging readers."

"Thank you so much for today, the kids had a really great time and you were fantastic. It was so nice that you also brought some Spanish into the show. I really wanted to thank you again for such a great show."

"We had Leigh and 3 of her puppet friends host a story time for the preK set yesterday and it was a great success! Leigh helped turn the pages of the 'big books' she brought, and her puppets read the stories, with audience chiming in, too!
The program drew a huge crowd for our little library- nearly 40 kids (infants, preKs, a few siblings in grades K & 1) and their grown-ups. How ever will I live up to that next week when it's back to just me hosting our story time?
After the 30 minute program (songs, too) the children were able to have a meet & greet with Leigh and her friends.
Leigh was warm and cheerful, her puppets charming ;) Newton asked each child their name as they arrived and warmed up the crowd before show time. Reviews included, 'Fun!' 'Funny-fun-fun!' 'A nice treat!' and my favorite, 'The magic was in her arm.'

"Leigh and friends (Newton, Phineas, and Floyd) kept my 22 Kindergartners entertained (make that enthralled!) for 45 minutes. Leigh was flexible and responsive to our curriculum needs, and tailored her performance accordingly. A delightful performance by a talented puppeteer!"

"We always have a packed house when Leigh and Friends visit us at the Kingston Public Library!"
