Comment: Michele Traina is a fabulous performer and an amazing person to work with! We have hosted several of her programs at our library, one in-library before the shutdown and the rest virtually, and each one was terrific. Her energy and enthusiasm make each one a fun, exciting experience for the kids and the parents. I’d highly recommend her and plan to continue to book her for future programs.

Message: Being a preschool teacher and having to find new ways to connect with my children during this time led me to reach out to Michele. I had no specific requests, I just asked if she could put something together for my students that I could share on our class Facebook page. I provided nothing other than the age group I work with and she put her creative mind to work. Within a couple days, I had a delightful video of Michele acting out the story, The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. Using a beautiful message from a classic children’s book, Michele applied her artistic talents to create a simple video that was loved by my students and their families. Thank you for sharing your gift of storytelling with my students!
