Sue5.0 out of 5 stars Fun & engaging stories
“I like the writing style which really brings the characters to life. The stories held my attention & offer life lessons that I think children will relate to. I’m looking forward to more from Ms. Borgo.”
Rebecca Strong Heisler, Ed.D.5.0 out of 5 stars These stories are fun and intriguing.
“What a perfect marriage Anita Borgo has created, fusing nature and magic in her book of intriguing short stories. They are interesting, fun, and stimulating—especially for 2-4 graders. The “activity book” to accompany the stories provides opportunities for problem solving and analysis. I recommend these for teachers and grandparents.”

Each short, fun read imparts a worthy, practical learning experience, and leaves plenty of room for discussion afterwards! So happy to add this to my grandchildren’s bookshelf!” C.M. Martin
