(March 2015) Please share with Jenny how much we enjoyed her presentation.  I have heard from many teachers how appropriate her talk was.  These are all comments I have heard: She spoke clearly; engaging presentation; age appropriate; chose her words well; no ummms or hesitation; clarified words or concepts that students might not understand; didn’t talk down to the students; listened to and answered student questions patiently.

We were so fortunate to have her visit our school.

PRAISE for Unlikely Friendships:

“Irresistible … heart-stopping in more than one sense.”

“The feel-good book of the summer—maybe the year.”

“One heartwarming tale after another of animals who, with nothing else in common, bond in the most unexpected ways.”

“With aww-inducing photographs, the book highlights the most improbable animal connections.” —NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC
