FIND OUT WHAT
It is with tears in my eyes that I write this. First let me thank you again for your kindness and visit. One of my special needs students came to me yesterday and asked if I would spend my lunch break with him and read to him! We spent the entire 1/2 hour reading the first several chapters of your book. This morning he came to me and said “Mrs. R, can we shut your door, I want to show you something.” I brought him in my room concerned. He opened up the book and struggled through but read me an entire paragraph! This is the first time in two years that he has even tried to read. I am so please and blessed that Kyle can make that great of an impact in such a short amount of time. Thank you for all that you do, I am sure you will never know all of the lives that have been touched by your speaking to young students.
Teacher and Parent
Heard you speak Saturday in Panama City. You autographed a book to my son Cade. He HATES reading at ten years old. He is through chapter one of The Sparks and I had to wrestle the book out of his hand!
Thank you for writing a BOY story that he can visualize! He’s so excited to read about ninjas and assassin’s! Thank you for giving him this adventure.
