Books and Bridges, Inc. has received numerous testimonials from participating teachers:
"What a great opportunity for our young campers to learn how anyone can be a leader. Even better when the lesson comes from someone who is a leader herself! It is good for them to see that you can believe in yourself and accomplish things at any age. The kids were really engaged and took the time to think about what they really wanted to do or be. I look forward to more story times and hope we can bring it to our preschool as well!"
- Ms. Ferraguto, Principal
"Thank you so much for taking the time to read to my class! They loved the book and discussion. You did such a great job keeping them engaged, which is hard to do on Zoom! It was a great message for them and they continued to talk about their dreams after we signed off. We would love to have you read to us again."
- Ms. Pace, First Grade Teacher
"They had so much fun with you. Thank you for joining our classroom. I especially liked when you asked students about accomplished women and what they wanted to be when they grew up. It really helped engage them and also connect them to the character in text."
- Mrs. Nuzzo, Fifth Grade Teacher
"I thought you did a great job! You introduced the book, you read it at a good pace and with expression, and you had some thought-provoking questions for the kids to answer at the end. I would love to have other members of Books and Bridges read to my class... Thanks for making this great opportunity happen!"
- Ms. Rogers, Fifth Grade Teacher
"The kids loved it. I thought you did a nice job with the story and the discussion. I hope we can do it again sometime!"
- Ms. Allen, Second Grade Teacher
