“Wow! I had such a great time tonight at the Florida Hospital for Children. I spent about 3 hours with the kids in the Emergency Room waiting room area. I pulled out the Rocks in my Socks book and we were reading through the pages together and even doing some of the activities. They liked Emilio's riddles and liked finding the hidden rocks in the landscape picture , they matched up the Dinosaur shadows with the character pretty well. Some were easier to get than others. Great idea about the books and everything!! I'm so excited and we all had a total blast with it all.”
-Heather – Florida Hospital for Children Volunteer.

“What a wonderfully entertaining story. It has intrigued my 3 month old daughter as well as my class of primary children (9-10 yrs). I often do presentations about our ICT and our international collaborations so it would be great to use such a wonderfully entertaining book as a means of encouraging more schools to be more creative and engaging. Thank you very much.”
- Patrick – UK Educator
