Davis Bates & Roger Tincknell

Here's what folks have to say about Davis and Roger:

"Thanks for the sensational show last week. You had parents, children and librarians equally engaged in the frivolity, and that's not easy to do....I hope you will be available for many rousing returns."
-- Children's Librarian, Maynard Public Library, Maynard, MA

"I have never seen an assembly at our school that was so successful. The students were enthralled by the stories, and I was amazed to see them participate so readily in the songs. Not bad for the hottest day during the last week of school."
-- Teacher, Piper Road 6th Grade School, West Springfield, MA

"What a perfect evening - cool breeze, great stories and fun music! I must say you two are a super combo! Many families thanked the library for having the program and said that they really enjoyed themselves. I was amazed that you managed to get so many of them up and dancing. And thanks for the excellent posters, photos and publicity. What a tremendous time saver for busy librarians! Hope we can have you back."
-- Librarian, Medway Public Library, Medway, MA

"You helped make our Community Day a success. Your performances were all that we had hoped for and more, bringing out the sun on such a cloudy day. We can't wait to have you back again next year."
-- Coordinator, Together We Can Community Day, Norton, MA

"The children were visibly enthralled by your talent, sense of humor, and calls for response. The parents were particularly positive in their comments, and this only happens when they themselves have been moved by the presentation.
-- Head of Children's Services, Winchester Public Library, MA

"Thank you so much for your wonderful performance. I was impressed with your ability to constantly engage the children and with your knowledge of different cultural traditions."
-- Programs coordinator, John F Kennedy Library, Boston, MA

"Our special thanks to each of you for a delightful afternoon of stories and songs. My enthusiasm is shared by your entire Goodnow audience....faces and eyes belonging to all ages have watched intently and smiled easily as you shared your music, cultural tales and lively lyrics with us all. Perhaps this can become an annual event!!"
-- Librarian, Goodnow, Library, Sudbury, MA

"I have never seen a program that worked so well for such a wide age range. The kids had a great time, and enjoyed the program for the whole hour, even the youngest ones."
-- Librarian, Georgetown Peabody Library, Georgetown, MA
