What teachers think about Book that B.A.R.F.
"Jackie Kruzie gave my second grade students from Williams Elementary in Magnolia, Texas, such a fun and inspiring lesson on how to make books BARF. Her upbeat personality kept the students engaged, and the lesson really works! My students have books BARFing and they are loving it!" - Kari Stringer, Williams Elementary School
"Jackie visited each of our school’s 3rd-5th grade classes, sharing a presentation about the writing process and her experience becoming a published author. The children found the presentation engaging and continued to refer back to her visit during their work in writing workshops throughout the year." - Jamie Martin, Vista Academy
