"It was a pleasure to welcome Kelly into our preschool. The book reading was beautiful and you can never replicate an authors passion for their own story. The children got to participate in the interactive learning and it fitted in nicely with our unit of inquiry for the term - Sustainability".
"Our kindergarten group thoroughly enjoyed Kelly's visit. Kelly's friendly, warm and calm nature combined with her interesting, useful and practical content kept the children (and teachers) interested and engaged. The information she presented prompted many discussions over the following days and weeks from our children. Our group has been very interested in Authors, so it was also fantastic to hear the history about her wonderful books. I highly recommend this incursion to kindergartens".
