"Looks great — and what a great thing it is to be doing a book for kids. I teach kids with emotional and behavioral problems and they are the BEST! I teach them art and music at a studio we put together at Northwood Children's Services. Good luck with this, I know it'll be a hit." — David Garon
"Hey there..... Been to Churchill and beyond. Spent time with the Inuit when they were in the midst of garnering some say in the government with the creation of Nunavut. Love your book. Miss the polar bears rambling around and the northern lights going off in the sky. Congrats on your book and apps. You've been my twin in the process while I've been working on my apps too!" — Jan Reynolds
