Ms. Bowes offers an exceptional interactive virtual experience.  Her presentation was professional and relevant with a positive message of inclusion and diversity. She has a seemingly natural ability to engage the learners on their level. It was a fun and informative experience.” – Andrew Ardley, Gr 3 Teacher Ocean View Elementary

“One of my teachers said it was the best author reading she has seen in quite some time. This teacher has a very energetic class and they were all captured by your presentation.”– Dana Cormier, Vice-Principal Shamrock School

It was fast-paced and interactive. The messages in the books aligned with the culture we are building in our class that focuses on the idea you can do anything if you just try! You’ve inspired another generation of young writers! Julie Last, Gr 2 Teacher Cedar Hollow 

This was AWESOME! Students were making connections, many had ideas of what they wanted Lucy to try. I’m going to have them put their artwork into their Visual Journals. Thank you, it was really informative and inspiring! – Lyndsi Irwin, Teacher Dr. Morris Gibson
