Children's Fairyland, Oakland 2012
"Muriel has a special talent for storytelling. Her warm gentle presence connects immediately with the children; engaged and at ease, they eagerly join in the story when it's their turn to make animal noises, or repeat fun, rhythmic chants and phrases. I've taught elementary school for over 20 years and told and heard my share of stories myself. Muriel is one of the best I've ever seen. Children are taken on a journey as she transforms herself into different characters in her story. Her voice, movements, expressions and most of all loving spirit captivate the children. Whenever I have a chance to invite her to my class, I can't wait to see the enchanted look on the children's faces when she performs her magic."
