Review:

I grew up in a foster-care home -- as the biological child. I m a witness to the need for George and Emma s inspiring story. It s a powerful primer for how to make the dream work! --Susan L. Taylor, Founder and CEO-National CARES Mentoring

Who Would Have Thunk It is that kind of book that stirs your soul, entertains your child and inspires your heart. Full of resiliency, determination and collective leadership, this book shows the power of team. I recommend every child, tween and teen be empowered through the words that George and Emma have provided. Profound, brilliant work!! --Lisa Nichols, New York Times, Best-Selling Author, No Matter What!

Children will be mesmerized by the story, its humor, illustrations and core message that it takes teamwork to make the dream work. I don't know of another tween book that teaches the skills of relationship building and networking so early and so well.
Thank you, George and Emma for this gem! --Dr. Randal Pinkett, Chairman and CEO, BCT Partners
