Quotes for Kids is a wonderful book using well-known quotes from famous people and not so well-known quotes from not so famous people. The author gives one or more interpretation of each quote, some of which are illustrated by clever line drawings … The thought-provoking book would be beneficial to children and young adults who today are inundated with violence and other negative behavior in the media, and sometimes in their own families. But adults will also enjoy and learn from the quotes … A sequel to Quotes for Kids for younger children, using more anecdotal examples to illustrate how one can show love and build character, etc, would be most welcome.

Karen McWilliams - Independent Publisher Magazine

…Through the sharing of her life experiences and her enthusiasm for the subject itself, the students gained in their understanding of the depth of quotations, such as the fact that words can take on non-literal meanings. The students also began to recognize that authors of quotations had the desire to pass on thought dealing with subjects such as character traits. Ms. Meyer also shared the steps to writing a book and publishing it. She is a very talented teacher and author, with a passion to help students learn and understand the value of a printed thought and how it can contribute to their personal well being.

Dear Lisa, After hearing you speak at the Delta Kappa Gamma meeting in Hershey, I knew that your book would be wonderful to use with my students. I never realized how much they would learn from it and love to read it each day. The students would fight over which ones they chose to read. They most always had a profound message that impacted on their life that day. Thanks a lot for making my year even more enjoyable.

Dear Lisa Meyer,

Thanks so much for writing a great book! I love every line of it! My name is Ryan and I’m 14 years old and on Christmas my mom got me this book called ‘Quotes For Kids’. At first I was like oh great a book just what I need (that’s my smart attitude that I want to get rid of). I saw you at Encore Books in Hampten Township and I walked up to you and saw your book and started to read a lttle of it and I loved it!

I’m in the band, you probably know that people in the band get called ______ and all that kind of stuff! This book has taught me to look past that kind of stuff and do the stuff that a person lives to do and that’s something that I love to do!

I have a problem with my Step Mom we don’t get along so well I really dis-like her! This book has helped me to keep my comments to myself! Please write more books like this and then write to me and I will litterally run out and buy it and read the book in one night! Thanks you are the best writers around for children you really inspired me.
