"Our school thoroughly enjoyed the Pickle Bumps presentations.  Bob and Jackie drew our younger elementary students into this engaging story.  Our school is focusing on diversity and bullying using Rachel’s Challenge National Campaign, so our children are exposed to Baby Dill’s message on a regular basis."

Laurie, East Central Elementary, Sandstone, MN

"The writing workshops for our upper elementary students were timely and “right on” with information that enriched our curriculum and addressed content needed to pass the MCAs."

Laurie, East Central Elementary, Sandstone, MN

"Mr. and Mrs. Fulton came to our school totally prepared for their two days of presentations to our students.  They are very pleasant to visit with and operate on an easy keel.  They interacted very easily with both staff and students.  Mr. Fulton’s presentations are professionally delivered, but not stuffy."

JoAnn, East Central Elementary, Sandstone, MN

"Clearly explaining how your book idea became a reality. I appreciated your warmth and gentle way of talking with our students. You involved the audience well."

Linda, Cold Spring Elementary

"Bob shared his book with the students in an age appropriate way, giving students a purpose for listening.  In addition to a great message about accepting differences, students were asked to analyze the story, the message and illustration techniques.  The kids were engaged and participated well.  Especially loved putting the 6th graders in the role of author/illustrator."

Beth, East Central Elementary, Sandstone, MN

"Your presentation was standards based and relevant for this age group. It delivered a meaningful message. The content of what you presented mirrored our learning objective for our book writing project."

Teacher, Becker Middle School

"Bob presented to the 6th graders at our school in preparation for their own children's book writing projects. Not only did this book create active discussion centering on diversity and inclusion, Bob's presentation was extremely beneficial in sharing how an author creates and expands ideas and carries the book writing through to publication. I highly recommend a Bob Fulton school visit!"

Julie, Becker Middle School

The message in this book helped my students embrace their differences and their individuality. The unique illustrations draw the reader in and the clever characters and dialogue keep them entertained and wanting more."
