This is what a librarian said after a multi-day school and library visit:
"Ruth McNally Barshaw is an entertaining and humorous presenter. She is able to
teach her audiences that their thoughts, words, and pictures have meaning
and are important enough to document. While drawing, the author informs listeners on how to get ideas for writing by drawing first, then using call outs, and finally illustrating a story arc. Using a hands on approach, Mrs. Barshaw keeps students actively engaged by having them doodle along with her. Highly effective!"
