"Your books make me wish I was a teacher again so that I could share them with my students. Art appreciation is a precious gift for children, both because it's so valuable and such a challenge for lay-people like me to impart - but your books make sharing the joys of art easy, inviting, and fun. Thank you." Vanessa Wright, Book Reviewer, Horses in Art Magazine
