Received from the director of a school in Palo Alto:
"I am not sure who had more fun, the teachers or the kids! We were still
laughing about it today in the staff room. You have such a gift and I
am so thrilled that you are using your gift in this manner.
"In this day and age parents, and even some schools, rely so heavily on
media to educate their children, that they are missing the single most
important piece and that is a child’s imagination. You nailed it right
on the head when you were telling the children that their imagination is
what makes the story come alive; for each of us will imagine the same
character in a different way. You said it much more eloquently than I
just did but you know what I mean!"
