Testimonial

Here is a testimonial from Susan Taylor, our Editor

See Rainbow Careers

I found your ideas fresh and original which is always an asset in the children's market. I particularly liked the character of Destiny (great choice of name) who is highly appealing, being both fun-loving but showing hidden depths. Your ability to connect each career to an appropriate rainbow color is a good reflection of your understanding of child development.

Destiny Discovers Purpose

I found it a wonderful companion piece to See Rainbow Careers. The concept of the treasure box of gems is a clever reinforcement of your original idea.
