I will use your book in my classroom
I am a preschool teacher currently and have been teaching for 26 years. I will use your book in my classroom as a great social and emotional learning experience on friendship, sharing, kindness, being shy, how to overcome shyness, and a fun way to explore and use nature respectfully. The content of your story drew me in, as did the bright colorful illustrations. It had a great flow with a wonderful ending. I will be searching for other children’s books you have authored. Keep up the good work.

A sweet realistic fiction book with a touch of fantasy
The Dandelion Horn is a sweet realistic fiction book with a touch of fantasy. I love that the main character is shy and finds a way to respond to meanness with kindness. I love that because of her kindness, Sophia ends up with lots of friends.

What a great way to show that bringing something to share can develop interest among peers and excitement
I really enjoyed the story! These ‘flowers’ have always been a favorite for children. They’re the first things in spring that the kids pick and bless their teacher with at school.
What kids don’t love blowing those seeds around?! The wish story was heartfelt. There are many children who can identify with not feeling they have friends. I loved the twist of the horn from the stem. What a great way to show that bringing something to share can develop interest among peers and excitement.
