A Reel Cool Summer Reviews:
First, I want to share reviews of my book and my visit from the Media Specialists at Sacred Hearts Academy. I visited with the children in Senior Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades. We had a blast reading A Reel Cool Summer, dressing up and acting like the characters in the book, talking about self-publishing, writing MadLibs together, and expressing ourselves by thinking about our senses. I want to thank the students, faculty and staff of the school for welcoming me with open arms and for letting us be loud in the library!
My students ages 4-8 read this book in the library and loved it! They couldn’t stop laughing and have been quoting the book for months now. A hilarious read aloud that inspires students to use their imaginations and work as a team. Five out of five stars!

The book engaged listeners. It was funny and entertaining. A great book for summer!

Author Visit Review
Martha Rodriguez is a true gem! She worked with me to develop lessons that aligned with our curriculum, and brought in props and teaching materials to keep students engaged.
Skype Visit Review:
Martha helped the students aspire towards becoming authors themselves. Every single student was actively engaged in her Q & A session and her fun writing activities that sparked the students’ imaginations. This was her second year of visiting our school and each time the students love to hear from her. They always comment on how much they enjoy her books. We are so fortunate to have found such a wonderful author to help our third graders with their author study project by Skyping with us from Florida to Hawaii. She enriched our students’ learning with her wealth of ideas and inspiration. Thank you Martha!
