I really liked your books. You are very talented and I think you should write more books! My favorite book was Hidden in the Himalayas. You are so great at writing that I want my librarian to see them. Hope you write more books. --Zoe (3rd grader)
Cooper received the books and was very happy. They are both really great stories and Cooper has asked me to read them several times now.For story time before we he went to bed tonight the little man proclaimed, "I will go get the book I want to read" and came back with Hidden in the Himalayas". Good stuff! --Rob M.
Your books arrived in very good time, and this evening I had an opportunity to read them. For me, the stories were very sweet, each having interesting descriptions of life in another culture, and each providing a model of respectful and compassionate behavior. Such an important example for children!
The style of the illustrations was unique, and it conveyed an atmosphere of another land far away from our country. The stories were easy to read and provided a situation in which one could anticipate how the situation would be resolved. What put me over the edge personally were the maps and geographical descriptions on the last page. Our kids, and many adults, need to see beyond our borders. That was always one of my important goals during the time that I served in various roles in public education.
On a personal note, I had forgotten about the swinging bridges that I had encountered when I was in Lhasa and mainland China. It's quite a sensation to traverse one of those! Your dedications were very touching, as well. Great job! --Nancy S.(former school Principal and ESL teacher)
