Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:ST. PATRICK’S DAY:“Lizzy Rockwell’s clear, vivid spreads evoke an active learning environment. This welcome addition to the series clearly outlines the importance of this day in March on which everyone is Irish.”
Praise for the Mrs. Madoff series:PRESIDENTS’ DAY:“An excellent introduction to the holiday for younger grades and a first purchase for most collections.”
