Some Parent's Reviews
A Parent: Now we know why Kathy likes to spend so much time alone and reading. She has the gift of teaching. She really relates to Sarah. Thank you for writing this amazing series.
Yvonne: I asked my niece one day what kind of spider was hanging outside my door. She proceeded to give me the technical name for a banana spider (nephila clavipes) and explained everything about it. She told me to not destroy its’ web because its’ body was rebuilding the protein it used up to weave it, and if it tried to weave a web too soon, it would die. She has a textbook motivational gift of teaching. Of course, she loves Sarah!
