Years ago Regina told a love story and I've never forgotten it for the way she brought the perfume and passion of the tale to life. She is a full-force conjurer of healing imagination, listen to Regina and you'll know it too.

In New York's Central Park, Noggs listens to Regina Ress, performing Beatrix Potter's The Tale of Peter Rabbit, surrounded by a rapt audience of dozens of children and adults. (I express) admiration at the large audience that has gathered to hear her. "Storytelling is growing fast in America," Ress declares, "because we need to hear the truth."
- The London Telegraph, Newman Noggs

Regina has a rare range of emotions and a cache of stories she's collected from all over our world. With classic precision, she both teaches and delights.

Thank you so much for bringing your heart and talents to our school community at Bridges-Passages Academy yesterday. Because of you, the great many non-readers in attendance (almost 50% of the young people you met) had a chance to participate in storytelling and to connect to oral literacy in important ways.
-Jessica Fenster-Sperber, teacher at Spofford Junvenile Detention Center
You bring an energy and freshness to the classroom that is grounding and inspiring at the same time.
