School Comments - Author Visits

Below are some lovely comments that I received from schools that I visited. All of the schools were gracious, organized and welcoming. I hope to be invited again!

"Your book is absolutely beautiful and the staff and students alike were caught up in the moment of Jesus' birth. I think all the mothers in the room shed a quiet tear as they connected with Mary. We look forward to more visits in the future."~ Leanne Stolpe, Director, Providence Christian Preschool

"This book is a perfect read-aloud to children from preschool to Grade 1. Second and third graders will enjoy reading the text themselves. Tonight You Are My Baby is a gift waiting to be unwrapped and would make a wonderful addition to any family's Christmas collection."~ Josephine Bachi, Library Media Specialist, Holy Family School

"It was very touching to see parents, grandparents and children sitting with their arms around each other as Jeannine read of a mother's love for her baby. Children already love the story of Baby Jesus, but Tonight You Are My Baby drew the parents in a new way."

~ Marcia Hartman, Director, Fairview Christian Academy

Student Comments:

"The illustrations were bright and bold, but the story was calm, quiet and peaceful"~ Grade 3, Gwynedd-Mercy Academy

"The rhyme of the words made it easy and enjoyable to read."~ Grade 3, Gwynedd-Mercy Academy

"I love the book. Can you come again please? I can't believe I met you in person. I have been waiting to do that. I would like to be an author some day too."~ Grade 2, St. Mary's School
