Thank You SO much we read ‘All About Me’ last night and they LOVED it. It could not have been more perfect for them being that we just moved. She said she wants to read it every night LOL. I don’t think I have ever seen her that excited about a book that wasn’t Dinosaur related. I must admit I was worried because it looked long and we don’t normally read books that long but it was so interesting and she could relate so much that they sat there and listened so intently. Thank You for a wonderful read.

I almost had to put my two year old in time out because she had a tantrum when I told her that she could not get her Briana’s Neighborhood bed time story. Your books have positively affected our household.

It was such a pleasure to work with you. You are AMAZING with the kids and I look forward to working with you in the future on events.

I am ordering books for my grandkids and I hope you continue with more books. I bought Cutie Pie last year and there is nothing new. So please lets make this grow for our girls that look like Briana so reading will be enjoyable for our girls. Thank You so much.

This is “An excellent, great looking idea to spark reading and inquiry about African-American culture at the youngest ages. You go girl! Open up those young minds and teach them to explore while enjoying reading!”
