REFERENCES and QUOTES
educators have shared their opinions concerning
The Bernie Jones Assembly.
- "I have been reading it (The Trouble With Bernie) to my 4th grade
students. They love the book, but the presentation was spectacular.
All the teachers enjoyed it tremendously, oh yes, the students loved it
It was so refreshing to show children another way to read and present stories. In addition, Johnny and Sharon talked about writing and how much work it is to revise and rewrite. This fit perfectly with what these students had just completed."

- Dear Bushells,
"The Green Oaks Student Council would like to thank the both of you for the wonderful performance. Everyone loved Mrs.Bushell's reading and the pianoplaying was very entertaining. Hopefully you can come again for the new students that will be coming to this school. After the performance I heard everyone talking about the wonderful music, and that they were dying to read the two books. My sixth grade class had a great time and from what Sara said it sounded like her fourth grade class had an awesome time also. Hope your travels are going well."

He was laughing out loud and having a grand old time! He read it for
the Battle of the Books here in Juneau. Thanks for the great family

in the same district as Tanque Verde Elementary where you visited last month.
They just raved about your performance."

tall tales and groovy music. Our students tapped, snapped, and clapped

- "The Bernie Jones Assembly was an entertaining and stimulating way
to make reading and writing come to life for our students. Johnny B. and
Sharon thoroughly entertained the entire student body and provided them
with an insight into the creative process and the work of an author."
