You are brilliant.  Thank you for the epiphany of balancing teaching students the technicality of reading with teaching students to love reading.

- Sharon Johnson, Reading Teacher

I loved Ring Around the Rhyme and based my curriculum on the information you provided with additional stories and rhyme based activities.  I teach preschool children with disabilities and I found it much easier to keep my student's attention using your tips.  I never realized how nursery rhymes could be expanded to teach behavior, following directions, fine motor, gross motor, matching, and so many other important preschool skills.  I targeted 3 rhymes a month to fit the season and skills that I was teaching.

- Heidi Holt, Scottsboro, AL Preschool Teacher
