Two of the best things I've ever been told at a school visit:

"This book changed my life." --Jack, grade 8

"You make reading fun."  --Martin, grade 6

(Actually, it's readers who make my writing fun!)

"After reading Awakening, and a classroom visit with author Claudia McAdam, students were able to enter into a deeper understanding and reflection on Christ's Passion. Students were touched in numerous ways as they connected the book to Scripture & Tradition, pictures from the Holy Lands and additional insights shared by Mrs. McAdam. We are truly thankful for Mrs. McAdam's well written story."
--Lisa Newman, Middle School Religion Teacher, Ave Maria Catholic School, Parker, CO

"Claudia did a fabulous job working with our creative writing group that includes a range of children in grades 1 through 6. The children were engaged during the presentation and enthusiastic about sharing their ideas during the shared poetry activity. They were excited about meeting a local author."
--Elizabeth Lamonia and Amanda Whitt, Children's librarians, Highlands Ranch Library, Highlands Ranch, CO 

"Claudia is a terrific presenter! She kept her listeners riveted and sent them away charged up with a need to read. I recommend a visit from her unreservedly."
--John Peters, Senior Children's Librarian, Central Children's Room, the New York Public Library

"What a wonderful treat to have Claudia at our school! Claudia's time with our students was both thought provoking and motivating. Students will never look at writing the same! Thanks for the opportunity for our kids to work with a real author."
--Debby Hoesterey, Assistant Principal, Lasley Elementary, Lakewood, CO

"What I thought about Claudia McAdam is amazing.  I was glad to Skype with an awesome author.  I like how she explained how her story came to life."
--Monique, 7th grade student, Loretto Academy, El Paso, TX

"Claudia gave a wonderful presentation! Her enthusiasm about being a writer was very inspiring."
--Donna Norvey, Borders Books at Arapahoe Crossings, Aurora, CO

"Our school was thrilled to host Claudia recently at our Art and Author Night. What an engaging and enjoyable presentation! All in our audience learned about publishing in a fun way."

--Becky Weide, Library/Media Specialist, Falcon Elementary, Falcon, CO

"The book, The Mermaid's Gift, is a beautifully illustrated book and tells a heart warming story with an important message. Some of my Year 4 children have read the book and thoroughly enjoyed it. They specifically commented on the descriptive vocabulary and imagery in the form of metaphors. They said they loved the illustrations too. This is a lovely legend linked to the Christian values of faith, hope, love, perseverance and courage. I can't wait to share it with my new class in September."

--Joanne Foulds, Year 4 Class Teacher, Canon Burrows Church of England Primary School, Ashton-under-Lyne, England
