blank4x4We all love the way that you use rhyme to describe the adventures of Einstein and Moo. Listening to you read about those thrill-seeking kitties is endearing and fun for students of all ages. Your visit will not easily be forgotten. You have inspired a generation of writers.

With deep gratitude,

I was impressed by the genuine interest that Jennifer showed in the children and how she captured their attention with her friendliness and questions about their own pets.

Sherry Lawson, chairwoman Friends of the Cape Charles Memorial Library 2016 Children’s Author Night Series

The students were engaged and excited to see the connection an author uses to make a book. This is such an important skill for students to learn, because as a teacher, after reading a story, I ask about personal connections to the story. I think doing more in school readings from an author is so beneficial in many ways.

All of my students adore the sweet way you write about your cherished and animated cats. The individual personalities of each kitty shine throughout the book(s). My students are currently learning about characterization and your books lend themselves perfectly to my teaching.

With sincere adoration, Heather Waild, 1st Grade Teacher, Portlock Primary, Chesapeake, VA Chesapeake Reading Council, Past President
