make me remember why I chose to live in Colorado."
Back from NYC where I did meet this wild girl, Sandy!! Thank goodness grandkids were safe, tho my heart goes out to all who are suffering...very scary Halloween!
I added a few books to my Christmas list...thinking of Christmas gifts. The new Barefoot Contessa one, a great kid's Nutcracker book, and Snow Day for Hannah--that was one of our huge successes during the storm, as we were snuggled in my daughter's apartment and the kids had the book and each had a stuffed "Hannah."
- Ken Gordon, Former Colorado Senate Majority Leader, Parent & Grandfather
"'A Snow Day for Hannah' will delight all ages. The vocabulary is age
appropriate for young readers but interesting enough for adults. Hannah's
exciting adventures in the snow and the beautiful photography will
capture everyone's attention. I loved it!"
-Mikee Kapelke - Twice Teacher of the Year, Cherry Creek Schools, & Grandmother
"I have shown your fabulous book to seven of my nine grandchildren (ages 3 to 12) and three daughters (their moms). Everyone begged me to read it again and again. The three year old is absolutely enchanted with Hannah and now knows the story by heart - the rhyme scheme is simple and, most important, memorable, so that she is able to repeat the rhyming words the third or fourth time through. The photography is unbelievable and Hilary (age 3) giggles recklessly every time she sees the pictures with Hannah riding the sled or covered with snow - her two favorites. Unlike so many books today, the story line is warm and wonderful. You have created a masterpiece for which moms and grandmoms will be eternally grateful. Thanks so much."
"With a spirit so fierce,
And a heart so kind,
Both mischief and friendship
This dog will find!"

"The curious and bouncy Hannah is featured in a witty story set in rhyme with vibrant, captivating photographs. Both children and adults will love this delightful dog adventure. Skilled students can read the book themselves. The book is unique because of the brilliant photos and rhyme. And who wouldn't love a happy dog story? It's such an appealing book that it ought to be widely circulated."
-Christine Terborgh, Teacher, Reading Specialist , Parent & Grandmother
"Linda Petrie Bunch's beautiful photography and engaging story line capture the brightness of a Colorado winter day, and the charm of a Bernese Mountain pup. But you don't have to have a Bernese dog in your family or live in the mountains to love this endearing book. It brings out the pup--or the child--in anyone, who once bounded through deep snow and would like to do it again."
Author of 2010 Colorado Book of the Year "Rosalie Edge, Hawk of Mercy: The Activist Who Saved Nature From the Conservationists"
“What an adorable story. I can't wait to read it to my elementary class this winter.”
-Marnie Bowen, Elementary School Teacher & Parent
"A Snow Day for Hannah is a delightful children's book, written and photographed by Linda Petrie Bunch. Hannah has a lovely day after a snowstorm, doing activities that we all wish we could do every snow day ~ things that should inspire our youngsters, instead of sitting inside and not being active. If Hannah the Mountain Dog can make a snowman and snow angels, take a hike and play in the snow, then we can, too! I can't wait to see what Hannah does next. She may be our kid's inspiration on how to have a good time and enjoy the out-of-doors!"
-Julie Mordecai, Director at Partnership of Rural Colorado Boys & Girls Clubs, Former Elementary Teacher & Parent
