“Lilly and Lucy's Shadow' follows Lilly and Lucy as they decide if they should be scared of their shadow or embrace their fear. The Spark, Brownie-aged were enthralled with the story. They recognized the importance of being a friend and supporting each other, and not allowing someone else to influence your decisions.”

- Ann Hosein,
Girl Guides of Canada- BC

“Wenda the Wacky Wiggler' is an ideal book to read to Sparks, Brownies and yes, even Guides... The girls enjoyed the story and were able to articulate that being oneself is important. The girls discussion around the story was helpful in demonstrating individuality, and being true to oneself.”

- Ann Hosein,
Girl Guides of Canada- BC
