It’s not every day that I get a letter on the Governor’s letterhead. I did today, and it was from fellow literacy advocate, First Lady of Wisconsin, Jessica Doyle. Of “Grandma Says It’s Good to Be Smart” she writes, “It is a tribute to your talent and determination to publish your own book. You must be very proud!
“The book is a beautiful collection of words and illustrations. The wonderful message will reach readers of all ages, and the brightly colored illustrations will make the children read it over and over. As a lifelong advocate of education, I am heartened by the message that learning and being smart are cool! Your experience as an educator makes this an exemplary work, and I adored the grandma’s personality.
“Congratulations on this marvelous book, and thank you for your contribution to excellence in Wisconsin.”
