"Working with Shelli is a dream. Her <CECE/science> presentation is fun and engaging, with activities and interactive elements available for schools or indie bookstores. Celebrating science with children has never been easier!"
—Lauren (The Story Shop, Monroe GA)
"Our students love CeCe Loves Science and they LOVED having Shelli visit our school. I love that CeCe breaks down the scientific method and features female scientists! Kids still talk about Shelli's visit, and our copies of CeCe stay checked out. We can't wait for the sequel, and hopefully another visit!"

"The Georgia Peach Author school visit is an amazing way to help young writers connect classroom instruction with the real world of writing. Shelli ... engaged my students at their level and left them with a desire to read more and write more. My students were thrilled with the practical writing tips they were able to take away from the session."
—K. Smith (Ed.S, ELA-7, North Gwinnett Middle School)
