Reviews
Imagination brings people to new heights and makes dreams come true. This book spurs oneís imagination beautifully. Highly recommended!
- Sandi Landon, HS math teacher and guidance counselor.
This epic poem poignantly deals with depression and makes it something that kids can relate to and realize they can conquer. Perfect in this Covid climate where more young people find themselves down and donít know how to get up. A must read for teachers and parents who can be the guides through this lifeís challenge.
- Candace Way, Teacher
This book should definitely be read aloud. Through the use of a blend of poetry and prose, having some Seuss like qualities, it engages both the reader and listener, as a diverse cast of characters pool their unique talents to solve a problem that at first felt insurmountable. By collaborating and persevering, they prove the sayings "Two heads (or more) are better than one" and If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." The addition of an addendum was very helpful. Who had ever heard of Mumuration?
- Linda Pons, Teacher
