Yesterday, I had to go to the doctor, and took Jim Walters's book with me to go through the lesson plans while I was waiting. When the doctor walked in the room, she was looking at my chart and started to ask me about my symptoms when she looked up and said, "Science Through Song? Do you mind if I look at this?" and proceeded to ask questions about it. To make a long story short, she would like to order one.
The book is wonderful! What a nice format and the CD is great. Jessica said, "Mr. Walters is the best songwriter that I know!"
