“Your kids will see themselves in this book – no matter the ethnic or cultural background.” ~ Lisa Nelson, The Squishable Baby

“Definitely an opportunity to fill a gap in children’s literature.” ~ Kathy Knapp, President of K2 Leadership Group, LLC

“Every child has fears, just like adults, and this book tells kids that its ok to have fears but if you want to accomplish a dream, a goal, or a wish you must first overcome them first. How awesome is that? Even as adults we have the same problem. I loved this book and the message. My kids decided that a trip to Appleville is necessary.” ~ Les Rhodes, Multicultural Children’s Book Reviewer

“The author does a wonderful job of creating a great place for little ones to discover truth. The story is the perfect way to help your child learn and strengthen them to be a good individual. It is a great book that will even get adults thinking about the golden apples in their life.” ~ Cassandra McCann, Cassandra M’s Place

“I would recommend this book to the children who are afraid to share their feelings and hopefully after reading this book, they will have the courage of the kids who journeyed to Appleville.” ~ Chick Lit Central, 11-year old reader
