I have a lovely message that I would like to share. To receive messages such as the one that follows is such a joy for me, and really does make the readings and presentations that I deliver that much more special.
A mother that attended a Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy reading at the Palm Harbor Library in Pinellas County, FL, sent in the following message:
“I met you today at the Palm Harbor Library during your reading of Danny the Dragon. First off, I’d just like to tell you how much my children enjoyed the story – my older son, Donovan, immediately requested that we go on your website when we got home so he could see Danny again. I really enjoyed it as well – the kind and polite way the characters spoke to each other was refreshing. I really can’t tell you how much I appreciated that you complimented Donovan on his drawings after the story and told him that he’s an artist. He’s a bit of a perfectionist and gets down on himself if he doesn’t think what he’s done is up to his standards and there is only so much he believes when I tell him that I love something that he has done. Hearing it come from you really boosted his confidence and he made sure to tell his dad tonight that you thought he was good. We also saw some of your artwork on your website and he said “She’s the best artist in the whole world” so he definitely respects your opinion!
I signed up for your newsletter so I hope that that will include any information about other readings that you will be doing but, if not, please let me know if you will be presenting in any of the Pasco or Hillsborough County libraries. My mother works at the Palm Harbor Library and we attended with her but we actually live in Wesley Chapel and I know my kids would love to hear you read the story again.”
