"Our 3 and 4 year olds enjoyed your presentation very much and have loved reading your books, coloring the
pictures, and creating their own stories!"

"Samantha did a fabulous job and the students were very happy. I was amazed how well
Samantha managed over 200 very young students and how entranced they were with her presentation,
especially the beautiful story."
, Librarian, Mountlake Terrace Elementary
"Samantha was a joy to have at our school. Her presentation was engaging, connected to our work,
and exciting and motivating to the kids. They loved seeing a real author and enjoyed hearing her
story. My Kindergartners left her assembly with remarks of, 'I can't wait to be a real author'
and 'I’m going to have to work hard but I can do it!' I would highly recommend having Samantha
visit your school!"
, Kindergarten, Enatai Elementary School
"I would gladly have Samantha Vamos to my school again. She writes wonderful books and connected with
our students at the assembly. Samantha showed a movie about her life as an author before going through a
Power Point presentation on writing. She encouraged our students to be writers and reminded them that they
are already storytellers. Samantha highlighted what was important. The students were on task with
Samantha's polished presentation."
, Librarian, Odyssey Elementary School
"Mrs. Vamos was outgoing, personable and easy to work with when booking her visit. She gave an
interesting, interactive presentation using a slide show and pictures from her books. She also brought her
books to share with the students.
I would highly recommend Mrs. Vamos and already look forward to booking her again in the future. While we
booked her for a primary grade visit, she hinted at some interesting facts like working with her publisher,
agent, and percentages of sales that could also tie in for older students! It was exciting for our students
to experience a local author with a multicultural aspect who was so personable and outgoing!"
, 2nd Grade Teacher, Medina Elementary School
"Samantha's presentation was wonderfully put together - well thought out, a variety of
mediums to keep the students engaged, yet so informative and creative. Her intelligence,
professionalism, and warmth really showed!"
