"Stories," Simms explains, "give us pictures in our minds that open hidden doorways . . . when you listen, you bring the story alive with your own images and feelings." Connecting with listeners through warmth and a sense of mystery, Simms creates an intimacy that illumines her delight in revelations of the magical in the ordinary. She invites listeners to come through the doorway to her young life in Brooklyn and seamlessly links this experience to traditional stories from her Eastern European heritage. Simms reveals, with wonder and reverence, how her grandmother gave her the gift of imagination and inspires listeners to think for a moment about gifts passed on to them. R.M.
