Shelley, Primary Teacher: "Kath's children’s show was great fun, creative and witty. Her lyrics beautifully capture the thoughts, imagination and experiences of children, making it easy for them to relate to and join in with during this interactive show. Kath's C.D is a favourite with my students and I highly recommend this show to any primary school." Jo, Kindy Teacher: "Both the kids and families enjoyed the concert. Nothing fazes Kath; she is relaxed, calm and “pleasant”. She is friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Her performance is bright and bubbly. She is a natural with the children. She is professional, refreshing and inspiring. The concert is fun. I don’t think our kids have caught on to anything quite like "Dragons Under My Bed" before. Her music is really tuneful and catchy and her songs tell a story. The actions are simple and the kids have done them ever since she came. Her songs are really original and different and we have listened to LOTS of kid’s music. She has the x-factor." Jacob, 10yrs: "Kath makes up songs for all different people – boys, girls – she is cool and a good singer. She is quite active and moves around a lot on stage. My favourite song is definitely “Dragons Under My Bed”." “I like doing it again and again and again” (Livia, 4yrs)
