My Granddaughter, Evelyn, came home sooo excited from the seminar you did at Tigerton Elementary. She was in the kindergarten class. She came home and demonstrated how to cast (2 to 10) and tie the knot you showed her. She was wearing her shirt and we read the book. Fantastic Job! Thanks for some positivity in this crazy world
