"I especially liked your way of speaking,- the tone and tempo of your voice is very secure, slow and comforting. There is a wonderful explanation of the process and how YOU can be helpful. It really explains what parents have NOT thought of and why they should buy this (very reasonably!) priced course. Then of course, if I was a parent, there is no doubt that I would be contacting you for personal service regarding my child.

So from a commercial perspective, I think it is wonderfully done. Not only informationally but in the graphics and good choice of music. Really a win Margie! And if I didn't like something I sure would mention it, because I know it would help you. But I think it is great! "
