Another Fun No-Fee Skype With a Class
I just wanted to give a big thank you for skyping with our class in Brick, NJ, last week. The students were excited about skyping with you, and they enjoyed every minute of it. There were some other language arts teachers in the room and the principal, and they were all very impressed. In the students’ end of the year reading survey, many of the listed you as a favorite author and named your books as ones they have read multiple times. This shows a huge shift from their beginning of the year survey. Thank you for helping our students down the road to becoming lifelong readers. I hope we can do this again next year. Have a great day.

Feedback From Another No-Fee Skype
Thank you so much for Skyping with us this morning. The students truly enjoyed the experience! I will certainly be in touch with you again, as I plan to read Give a Boy a Gun next year with my 8th grade honors students.
It was an absolute pleasure!

A nice note from a teacher regarding If I Grow Up
Hello, Mr. Strasser!
I want to thank you for your amazing books. I teach a reading intervention class to 9th graders and one of my students is reading If I Grow Up. He is a student who has struggled this year and yesterday, as he was reading your book, he told another student, "This book be so good! I could read for hours!" It was music to my ears!
