Scott is a masterful communicator - in preparing for the event, in promptly replying, and in performance. Even as he sets up and takes down, he asks fun questions interacting with us. Scott also understands children. He put on a puppet show that had the 25+ kids on the edges of their seats, even reaching their arms out in gleeful protest of the folly or support of the good choices of Kabazoo the Camel ! One child had declared before the show she didn't like clowns, but there she sat in the front row laughing and responding to all Scott's prompts. Later, she told me "He's a nice clown." Boys & girls alike were engaged in the story and the narrative magic show that followed. Scott made balloons appear at the very end to segue into the final 30 minutes of making hats for the kids. Can we clone this clown, please !
