"Our students thoroughly enjoyed meeting Bob Salomon and Rick Young.  Their presentation was organized, entertaining and informative.  The authors kept the students engaged, energized, and inspired!  The kids made meaningful connections about kindness and never giving up and were totally interested and captivated.  It was a terrific visit and they couldn't have be more welcoming to embracing Aldrich School teachers and staff!"
