The kids LOVED her!  : ) “ -Susan Stearns, Librarian, Jefferson County Public Schools

“Delightful, engaging, visually appealing, and bookishly educational.  Anne Arndt’s presentation of her two books kept students quietly listening to the process of Anne’s book, from conception to completion.  Mrs. Arndt read her book complete with the visuals on screen.  Then she went further and showed the students the process of creating a book and seeing it to print–long roll of paper with words and images revealed the lengthy but delightful process.  Each child felt as if the book could have been written about them and their own lives and travels with Fluff the Owl. I think children saw the dream that they too could dream about and create a book such as Mrs. Arndt did.  Travel with Fluff the Owl; you will be glad you did.” -Becky Cox, Teacher Librarian, Kendallvue Elementary

“This assembly is very engaging throughout. Our students and teachers thoroughly enjoyed the author visit.  The teachers enjoyed listening to Anne and watching her interact with all the children.  The students were excited to be able to talk with a ‘real author’ and learn from her.” -Karen Puga, VP, Cherry Creek Schools
