It wouldn’t be Applefest without you! It was wonderful to have you perform at our festival for the past 5 years. Your performances were fantastic! We look forward to seeing you both days in 2018."

"Cindy Cook's "Sing N Spell " program was a great success at Wychwood Library. She held the audience in the palm of her hand with her singing, patter and puppets. The children were engrossed with her antics and yet she was able to control a large audience of enthusiastic children who all wanted to volunteer to help at the same time. The parents enjoyed themselves just as much and sang along. Cindy comes to your library, does her own set up and does not ask for any assistance. She has everything under control. Her program is always sure to be a hit!"

"It was an absolute delight to have Cindy Cook perform at Palmerston Library Theatre during March Break. We had a full house (110) and the program was enjoyed by all, young and old. The children all sang along and laughed; the noise carried throughout the branch and everyone was peeking in to see what program was taking place. She invited a good number of children to come on to the stage and perform with her which was such a fun element for the young audience! And it was great how she picked a very diverse group of children from the audience. I would most definitely invite Cindy back to perform at future library programs."

"Way to Go, Cindy!! The packed theatre audience loved the show! As a kindergarten teacher, I have ALWAYS stressed that children must be encouraged to participate FULLY. You gave the children your blessing to do so and the delight in their faces was instantly visible."

QUINTE CHILDREN'S THEATRE, BELLEVILLE
"I had Cindy Cook out at our Bright's Grove location for our summer reading program and it was packed! Cindy's beautiful singing voice and interactive performance style kept the kids engaged right to the end. She incorporates a strong early literacy component into the songs, which is perfect for any library. I would recommend Cindy Cook's performance to any library system - she had the grown-ups singing and clapping right along with her, and many kids and grown-ups stayed after the show to thank her. I thought she did a fantastic job!"
