Praise for the AGNES & CLARABELLE books:


"An engaging visual design, charming characters, and funny, relatable story lines make this a lovely addition to chapter book collections." - School Library Journal

"The authors effectively use common childhood experiences to share several important messages about caring, empathy, compromise, and what it means to look out for a friend. Children will easily relate to Agnes and Clarabelle's feelings and experiences, and parents/teachers will appreciate the positive messages of friendship and caring." - Kendra Hall-Kenyon, Associate Professor of Early Childhood Education, Brigham Young University

"Read & Bloom will be wildly popular. And I am very happy to see some new friendship books come along with the end of the Elephant and Piggie books." - Teri Lesesne, Professor of Library Science at Sam Houston State University

"Funny and appealing, the Read & Bloom books will charm readers." - Linda M. Pavonetti, Ed.D., professor of Reading and Language Arts at Oakland University
