We can't thank you enough. You bring out the best in the kids. We can't wait for next year, and the next, and the next...

Students and teachers alike thoroughly enjoyed the fun presentation combined with lots of interesting information. We are simply tickled pink!

- 5th grade teacher, California

I wanted to take a minute to thank you for the incredible visit you provided. The students were engaged and interested in what you had to say...I know that for many children it was an incredible opportunity and they were so excited! My son, for one, talked about it all night and immediately began reading the second book! It was a truly magical and inspiring session.

- Library specialist, Texas

I gotta tell you that you were amazing. I want to write books now!
