Dearest Michelle, what a beautiful, humorous, compelling story filled with hope for us all. It’s a story every child will want to read.

You showed us that amazing things can happen when you trust and follow your dreams. It is also very informative regarding the subject of ADHD; I know many parents will be grateful for your insight and advice.
Your ideas for coping mechanisms will be of great value, I know. The opportunity for the reader to reflect on the story in written form and relate it to their own experiences are valuable activities.

Asking children to focus on their own personal qualities will enrich their self-esteem, I’m sure. The comprehension elements of the integrated activities will improve comprehension skills, including inference and deduction skills.
Moreover, you’ve given children the opportunity to write their own version of the story which will enable them to practise a variety of creative writing skills: the effective use of descriptive vocabulary, sequencing, paragraphs, structure, punctuation and grammar, etc. The book would make an excellent teaching aid!
‘Poppy’s Miracle’ is a lot more than just a children’s book!!!

You should be commended for producing a story with so many layers of interest to hold the reader. I loved the photographs which enhanced and complemented the text. Your personal information gives readers an insight of you as a mother, wife, friend and author.

As an adult, I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book so I’m sure it won’t be confined to young readers!
