What Readers and Writers Are Saying About I Love Kids Books
“Thank you for such a wonderful review of “Martha!” And I think Max has a career ahead of him in acting. You very much brightened my day!” – David LaRochelle, author of How Martha Saved Her Parents From Green Beans

“I love this post, Julia. I’m reblogging it for #RaisingReaders Monday over at kateywrites.” – Katey Howes, children’s author and book blogger

“What I love about Julia’s blog is that she brings a perspective about books that I don’t have yet; experiencing books with your children.” – Aila Jones, blogger Read It Real Good

“A touching tribute and masterful how you tied it into the Mr. Frank book and Max and Calvin.” – Dana B., reader, mom, North Carolina

“I could so go on a book shopping spree. Very fun and helpful as there are a lot of books out there, but best to go with a book that has been “kid tested”…you could develop a Calvin & Max seal of approval.” – Karen D., reader, grandmother, Vermont
