"This is the third time we have had Felice Arena visit our school, and he is always wonderful fun, yet educational as well! Felice's sessions are as much a performance as anything, and the children don't realise they are learning at the same time – nobody gets the shuffles, everyone wants to participate, & laughter abounds! We always have a resurgence in reading his books after Felice has visited, and even more so with his newly released titles. We love Felice!"
