My daughter had the opportunity to meet Mr Riley, and she loves the books, she is reading #2 she just finished #1, great reading for 3rd graders.
I enjoyed the author that shared his vision with us. I felt Mr. Riley made writing sound easy but challenging.
It was just great! The students were excited about it and some said they really wanted to write a book. It was very worthwhile and neat to see an author who may become very well known in the years to come.
I thought he was great!

It was great that the kids got to meet someone who is presently writing books. I like the fact that he brought articles that were inspirational or relevant to his writing. The kids had lots of questions to ask him. Thank you for arranging this.

I love how the books tell a reality based story in such an engaging, child-friendly way. I know that parents and caregivers are always looking for ‘teachable moments’ and these books fill that need. In addition, these books are on-trend with today’s parents who are looking to place more emphasis on tradition and learning.
