It was so much fun! And, the kids really learned a lot about making "Something from Nothing" and getting ideas for stories from all around us. -Kerri Steininger, 2nd grade Teacher, Clinton Elementary

"Mr. Synadinos came to our school to share his book, as well as do a little improv with the students. My 5th grade students LOVED the idea of improv. It is something that kids crave in this day of electronics! Using their imaginations, motion, and expression to tell a story really sparked creativity!"
