"Your posters were used along with the kid's art to create a service project for our nearby retirement home. Our schools word of the month was "grateful ". Your Grateful poem poster was used for this project. We walked to the retirement home and had the children recite the poem, hand them each the picture they drew and a handout of the poem we sang. I wasn't sure who got more joy out of this project, the kids or the adults. Their faces were priceless. Thank you for the continuous inspiration and creativity. The world needs more givers like you." — Marie Lasker, Director Larson's Children Learning Center
"Marni. What a touching segment. How good of you to send such a great message to your children and bringing in the Lafayette students." — Mary Maddux, Lafayette School principal
