"Finding good quality books and activities for infants and toddlers is very hard. The story s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-r-s are perfect and easy to do. I am so excited about starting this new year off with exciting material for my little ones. Thank you so much for putting great quality work on the market."
--Lisa Hoover, Director of Children's Services, LaVergne Public Library
"...it would be one of the first resource books I would request..."

"...wonderful tool to help support the emerging literacy process in young children. A book I will recommend my adult students to add to their curriculum books. The format supports a busy teacher's need for quick and easy access to materials/ideas. To coauthor it with Karen Miller validates its appropriateness for infants, toddlers, and twos."

"A must for every teacher of infants, toddlers, and twos!"
--Dr. Patricia Kuby, Athens State University
