Carol Burton"My daughter is finishing up unit 12 today. We're half way done! I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how well things are going. We love your program. I was very worried about what reading curriculum I was going to go with, but when we heard you speak at the Ohio Convention in April I knew right then that your program was right for us. I enjoy watching your videos. I feel like I know you. It's comforting having you there to remind me of things and encourage me. I hope to meet you again at the 2012 Ohio Convention and see about Burton Reading: Beyond!" - Ohio mom
