Partners in promoting literacy
"Actress Kathy Kinney and her talented partners, Clay Graham and Dana Plautz, have
created a wonderful new free resource for parents, teachers and librarians which
encourages the pleasures of reading and being read to. Mrs. P's love of a good story
is infectious and her wacky magical interactive library is a warm and inviting place
that children will want to visit over and over again. I'm delighted to have an actress
of Kathy's caliber lend her support to children's literacy and encourage everyone
to take a look at this wonderful site."

"Reading aloud to children has been determined to be the single most important activity
for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading. Sadly, that
is not happening nearly enough in our country. The creation of Mrs. P as a free,
read-aloud resource for children and families can help address that gap by bringing
to life some of the most wonderful stories in a fun, engaging way. When Mrs. P reads
with a child, everybody wins!"

“I think this project is a fantastic, original idea. As a parent and teacher/literacy
coach, I consider it to be a fabulous alternative to many of the existing kids'
websites, which are inane at best and dangerous at worst.”

You almost want to toast marshmallows on the open fire as you cyber-curl under Mrs.
P’s feet by the fireplace. No need to bring a book; she has quite a selection. This
interactive site will thrill your eager readers for hours. Actress Kathy Kinney
tells delightful intro stories and expertly reads the books. Best viewed on a high
speed Internet connection, it’s a breeze to navigate. On the homepage, click on
the various items around the warm room to find intriguing, sometimes outlandish,
stories about Mrs. P. …And… the reason we all want to stay in Mrs. P’s library is
the book stacks themselves… Keep an eye on this site for future improvements and
Our staff is made up entirely of current or past highly-experienced teachers. We
ARE teachers, first and always, and we know a good site when we see it. Bravo, Mrs.
