"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.”
