"As a parent in a bilingual family, reading The Impossible Dream with its beautiful message to my children helped reinforce our French language skills. As a library director in a bilingual province, I'll be sure to carry The Impossible Dream on my shelves. As a yoga teacher, I'm very pleased to have this valuable resource available to teachers and parents to encourage children to develop their physical literacy skills while learning about Acadian history."

"Keeyaw WOW! Nothing is impossible! Educators and former librarians Kathe Hudson and Melanie Moyer awaken the power of storytelling with a Cajun retelling of a classic folktale. Learning becomes effortless play in this lively tale written in rich language. The body comes along too, combining story with yoga to inspire us to follow our dreams on a joyous journey of self-discovery. HOORAY for The Impossible Dream! "
Sydney Solis, founder of Storytime Yoga®
"The authors of this delightful story have captured an old tale and wrapped it into a Cajun version that will entertain, for true. They certainly won my Cajun heart."

"Melanie and Kathe kept our second grade students 100% engaged with their story, "The Impossible Dream." The kids LOVED the yoga and everyone sang along to "Goodbye Joe, me gotta go, me oh my oh..." So much fun!
Julie Broussard, School Librarian
"I was mesmerized from the start reading this story. The child in me resurfaced as I looked at the pictures and read the words. The insertion of French words and their translation added just enough French culture to this story. The illustrations were bright and inviting. I can only imagine how much more fun children will have doing yoga while listening to your yoga stories. The yoga poses at the end of the book were a great addition for future references. My great grand daughters are asking, 'Is it Yoga Time yet?'"
Sudie Landry, President - Writers Guild of Acadiana
