"​"Violet Finds A Dollar" offers a wonderful message of honesty and "doing the right thing". The book also opens the door to introduce money and the importance of  saving to young children.  A great read for families!"

"Blessings! If you only knew how excited I am that you liked my comment.  Not because of the comment itself but because my daughter who has APD and I used to read Violet finds a dollar. It was one of her favorites and helped her with reading. Thank you so much for using your gift and blessings us with Violet. May your hands continue to be prosperous in all you touch."

"Violet finds a dollar" is a literary gem that is beautifully written and inspiring. The story  sends a great message for children about doing what is right even when one does not want to do so. The interactive segment where adults and children revisit the moral of the story is priceless, offering critical thinking and a moment to reflect on the children's feelings. Looking forward to sharing more of "Violet's" adventures with my children. 


"I bought and much enjoyed your Violet series. Congratulations on an excellent idea and its executtion.

Your emphasis on positive concepts of Daddy, non-traditional marriages, gender, and racial issues faced by the young; are all admirable, and I assume needed (I don't have children)."
