"Cyd was a rocket to the sky success. Her upbeat personality is in her artwork!"

Cyd Moore is a dynamic presenter and a favorite at conferences, libraries, schools, and special events. She's left behind her a trail of smiling kids (and adults), inspiring gasps and giggles, creative thinking, and a love of story and art. Her entertaining multimedia presentations include storytelling and art progressing from childhood to her latest projects on her drawing board. 


At schools, she whips out sketches and then encourages teachers to make copies for every student. Everyone goes home with a special coloring page. Her energy can handle a large crowd, engaging all ages from high school art students down to the most wiggly 'worms' in kindergarten. At times, they seem to be truly spellbound.

Want to invite Cyd to speak at your next event? Contact her with details and someone will get back to you soon.

"She brings joy to the world of literacy!" 

"It was such a pleasure having Cyd at Edmonson Elementary School last week. The students and staff thoroughly enjoyed her upbeat, motivational presentation. All month long we celebrated March is Reading Month, and her visit truly inspired our children to view books as a wonderful learning tool. We are thankful that she shared her talent and positive message. She brings joy to the world of literacy!"   - Edmonson Reading Teachers

"Cyd didn't disappoint. She made each child feel special."

"Cyd delighted kids of all ages, as well as their parents, at our summer reading kick-off program.  As she showed how the story of her life is reflected in her art, she gave kids the inspiration to draw and tell their own story.  But most touching was watching the dozens of kids who came to the Library with their tattered copies of I Love You, Stinky Face. They couldn't contain their excitement and Cyd didn't disappoint. She made each child feel special, signed each book, and posed for pictures time and again.  We're already getting requests to bring her back! - Josephine Nolfi, Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County, Youngstown, Ohio

"She brought a great message as well as enthusiasm."

"Cyd is a wonderful illustrator! Very personable and encouraging with students. She brought a great message as well as enthusiasm. I would highly recommend Cyd Moore to other elementary schools. Cyd’s presentation was a great experience! Our PTO bought a Cyd Moore book for each student, and it was amazing how she got all of them autographed and illustrated before her departure." - Pam McGhee, Lincoln Elementary, Beatrice, NY
