“I've read this book to my 2nd grade students 2 years in a row. They just can't get enough of it. They want me to read it to them (or [read] to themselves) over and over again. That is what reading is all about.” – Maria Bertolina., UT
“SOUNDS IN THE HOUSE” is Mairin’s new favorite book. I’ve read it at least ten times in the last few days. It is a good introduction to what fear is, and how to overcome fear. The dog is adorable, too. – M. Ferrel, CA
