“I just recently found your website, and loved
the stories! I am using them in my classroom to teach
the elements of literature. They are just the right
length for the students to read in a short period of
time and then identify the various elements. Please
write some more! The students love them!”
— J. Phelps, Middle School Teacher
“Thank you for this web site!”
“I want to praise you for creating a teacher
friendly web site. I have been using your story
The Frog Princess
for about two years. You have enabled so many of my
students to reach with in and harness their own
creativity. I always experience such positive feed back
when we use your stories. “
— J. Ellis, a sixth grade teacher
“Great idea! My kids enjoyed making up stories and even
asked for more.”
“I am currently a student intern teaching third grade
at Argyle Elementary school in Argyle Wisconsin. … Motivating
my students has been an unending battle until I found My
Chocolate Brother. My students loved it so much that all
eleven of them have created an ending.
Thank you for inspiring my students.”
“We love your stories!!! I teach in a 6th grade computer

up the good work.”
