What wonderful comments! Thank you for the encouragement. I have been hoping that the volume of sales will result in a nice donation to RRP, one of my major motivations in writing the book, as you know. Your sincere and timely posting is very much appreciated.

Today I received a thank you card from a seven-year old girl. If I can figure out how to capture the actual image to a post, I will do that later.  In the meantime, here is what she says in the note:
"Dear Mary Jo (smiley inserted here). I love the book that you gave me  what is it called again  o yay I remember the Littel eagles and how they grew  thaks so much  I apresheat it  from B."
My comment here: Is that endearing, or what!? I was touched to receive this.

Mary Jo, I'm betting that one note makes it all worthwhile to you!  It is something you will remember forever! :)

Oh how neat!  Do you have a scanner?  Scan it in and save it as a .jpg and post it.  If you're not sure on posting it just e-mail it to me with the thingie by the PM thingie and I'll post it for you, definitely worth sharing.

Faith and Nora, yes this is memorable. I will try to get it scanned and posted by end of week. Thanks for your feedback. The child's mother told me some time ago that her daughter would be sending a note and I responded that it wasn't necessary but that I would love to hear from her and even meet her sometime. Wouldn't that be fun.

A cool note from young parents, received today: "We've all enjoyed your story about the eagle couple and their babies so much! Our (two-year old son) likes to bring the eaglet with him (along with a stuffed monkey he has) to dinner, to bed and on outings in the car.  Congratulations and we wish you much success in distributing your book!"

By the way, I am working on an avatar for myself which should appear soon. N., thank you for your help.

Yes, can't you picture a strawberry-blond two-year old boy with a stuffed monkey toy under one arm and a stuffed eagle toy under the other? Fun. Thanks, Nora.

I don't have to picture a child with your book. My grandson, who's name is Jacob has the book and stuffed eagles!  P.S. His sister has the same toys and book! :)

Positive comments on the book and stuffed toy eagle are continuing to fly in (pun intended  :)
People are anxious to get them for their holiday shopping, can hardly wait to get them, then tempted to keep them themselves! And that's OK, of course because we adults love the eagle experience, too. The Three Little Eagles book is in use in classes, and it is a wonderful teaching tool.

An emailer just wrote: this story needed to be told, another (retired orthodontist) said: "The book is so well-done. It is a very nice piece of literature." And more: fun; entertaining; a memoir of 2011; touching; educational; great photos from the nest, create a mood. Such kudos could really go on and on here, and selected ones will be offered from time to time.

It was a huge job to put together this book, along with the toy, get it published in a timely manner, etc. But the effort will be well worth it if just one child becomes more interested in reading/nature/eagles (and now I know many already have been engaged by reading the book themselves or having it read to them) and encouraging a volume of sales that will result in a nice donation to RRP in gratitude for all of their fine work. --Mary Jo
