Reviews from Elementary Schools about Jim's Excellent Skills as a Story Teller:

 
“Within a single hour, the children and adults sitting on the floor and tables were taken from the jungles of Haiti to the icy igloos of Alaska, only to end up on Alabama’s Tombigbee River. They were riveted to the voices, faces and sound effects that Cogan creates so seamlessly.
-Lesley Wright, Los Angeles Times
 
“You were fabulous; the kids loved you. All grades are repeating stories to their families and 
that only adds to the conversations at the table which we know is the key to a good and close relationship. The teachers loved you; they were, as I was, enthralled. You give so much value. Emphasizing the messages in the stories is a wonderful addition as they are they original way humans instilled values and morals in each other. You are a gift to all of us; a master storyteller who can create all the voices, emotions and gestures of 40 characters! Teacher after teacher and child after child has spoken to me about you. Thank you thank you thank you. I would say you are coming back to our school; hopefully many times.”  
-Angelique Pitney, Carden Conejo School, Calabasas, CA
 
“Today we had two assemblies and eight workshops with Jim Cogan, a master storyteller. He was fantastic! The students were mesmerized with his stories! The students also interacted with him while he was telling his stories. In his workshops he taught students about story mapping techniques and plot exercises. Everything he teaches follows the Common Core State Standards. This is one of the best assemblies I have ever participated in and the workshops were very productive. He will do two [or three] assemblies and stay the entire day for the workshops. Check his program out at www.jimcoganstoryteller.com. I even had teachers ask me if he could come back and in-service them on how to engage the students like he does. Truly amazing and worth every cent!”                                        -Deborah Hutchinson, Liberty School, Chino, CA
