A comment from an attendee:
"I just wanted to tell you how terrific your presentation was! It was very interesting and informative and your enthusiasm for the program really came through!! You also gave some really helpful practical tips. I'm looking forward to next week's presentation. I'm so glad that you are going to focus on how to adapt the program for different age groups. It was a question I had. Thanks for giving us newcomers the benefit of your year's of experience with this terrific program. I did a presentation today after the webinar for my friend's 8 year old granddaughter (and yes, I made my friend, her husband and my husband take part as well). It was really fun and they all said they liked it and learned a lot. I'm looking forward to giving these presentations in the schools, libraries, etc." ~Maryellen Sullivan
