In the Newspaper!

I am so excited to announce that The Adventures of Piratess Tilly and the author, Elizabeth Lorayne, were mentioned in the local newspaper, Eagle-Tribune. Elizabeth was quoted about her experience reading to the children at the American Training, Inc. book event last week. From the printed paper:

"... 'I couldn't be more honored to have read my children's picture book to this group of enthusiastic and involved children. Hearing them excitedly respond when asked interactive questions throughout the book reading, was beyond words.' said Elizabeth.

She handed out signed copies of her book to each of the young students which as met with a sea of 'thank you's.'

'That's my new favorite book,' said Disnelson. The others students agreed.

'Any event that encourages literacy and love of reading is a great event or our kids. They're like little sponges. It was real bonus for the author herself to be here to read to them and talk to them,' said Marice DiLorenze, Academic Coach for the elementary school..."

This was a truly incredible experience! I am so thankful I was asked to participate. Please read the entire story below. It's quite heart-warming! ;)
