Reader Favorite posted a five star review

Reviewed by Kristie I. for Readers Favorite

Hoobsy and Dubsy are very imaginative and their imaginations will inspire the reader to attempt some of their activities as well as to try their own variations. It is so often heard by children that they are bored when in actuality there are many things that could be done. This book would be great to have children go to whenever they state, “I’m bored,” as it will remind them just how much fun they can have doing “everything” activities. Adorable, vivid, and detailed illustrations go along with the story that the children will love as well!"

Visit Goddard School in West Windsor, NJ

On April 23, 2012, the Goddard School in West Windsor, NJ, invited me to visit two classes, a pre-K class and a Kindergarten class. We read almost all stories and had a lot of fun exploring ideas how each story could end.

Thanks so much to Diana Sirak, the owner of the Goddard School for inviting me. I also want to thank Lisa Kapili (Educational Director), all the teachers and students involved in the visit. It was an unforgettable experience.

Below, you find illustrated ideas from kids how the Gardening story could end. They are wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing!
