Here's what other's are saying about "Casey Books" and Kamaron KC3 Positive Label Program
"An Amazing Book About Labeling" - SAYS THE ATLANTA JOURNAL COUNSTITUTION
"We have found a lot to like in the KC3 Program. Program addresses the broad range of character traits mandated for Georgia schools and offers special attention to bullying.
"The materials that accompany the story are easy to use and laid out in a process that can be adapted to a range of school settings and resources, and offer a wonderful flexibility for educators in creatively implementing the program.
"Another attractive feature are the potential activities recommended in implementing the program, engaging the broad range of learning styles." -- GEORGIA CENTER FOR CHARACTER EDUCATION
"You are holding in your hands a living classic. Never have I read a children's book so packed with entertainment, education and motivation. Every page has a lesson on patriotism and character building. I enjoyed it when I read it and even more when I reread it. In all my years of teaching people to love to read and the importance of books, I've never read anything quite like it. It is truly tremendous and young and old are going to love it." - Charles E. Jones, CPAE and author of "Life is Tremendous"
"Mrs. Bush thanks you for your work and hopes you will continue your efforts to promote reading."
