I received a surprise package in the mail the other day, and it was your book, Let’s Pretend. I didn’t know what to expect, but what I found was a beautiful, charming, creative, professionally presented book written by a wonderful 7 year old, with a little guidance from her grandmother, magnificently illustrated by my old friend Rossi. Everything flowed perfectly. I loved the story that Mia wrote, and I loved what Rossi did with the photos. The ‘fuzziness’ made me step into a child’s world of make believe, where make believe is real. I’m sure it was a great experience for the 3 of you, and I know my granddaughter will want to read it over and over again. I am honored to have received a copy signed by the author. –Judy Jennings
Bobbi & Mia have created a real jewel with LET’S PRETEND. Also an awesome job with the illustrations by Rossi…you are indeed a very talented family that are a shining example with how you work together and support each other. Thank you for sharing this with all of us! –Dave Cox
Read a delightful children’s book this afternoon. I not only enjoyed the lessons and the magic of the story, but also loved the illustration. Thank you for Let’s Pretend. –Damon Weems
