Event Reviews




“I loved the activity of helping a child find his story. I will absolutely be using it in my classroom. Your Presentation also made me think about self worth and how to build a positive self image. It made me realize how much I have damaged myself with negativity. I’ve never left a PD with tears in my eyes and a new outlook on myself. Such an eye-opening experience to share my ‘aha’ moment with my students and my daughter. Thank you so very much for sharing this learning opportunity with our school!”

“Many authors have good books and many have great rapport and interact well with our kids, but it seemed over the years we seldom got both! But Renata was just awesome. The kids and staff are still talking about her visit.”

Michele M. Fabbro, Librarian, Indian Creek School Dist.

Mingo Junction, OH

“Renata’s motivational speech for women had me mesmerized. So much so that I immediately purchased her book for my granddaughter so that she may grow up with the same message. Renata welcomed me and signed my book in the midst of the crowd gathered around her table. I wholeheartedly recommend Renata for any speaking engagements.”

“I love how Frieda B. The Whole Child works with 20-21 students in a classroom, all at different levels of learning and emotional issues.”

Classroom Teacher, Wolf Swamp Road School

Longmeadow, MA

“Renata, I just wanted to take the time to THANK YOU for the impact you had on my child. You must touch the lives of so many without even knowing it, what a special gift! Thank you for sharing it with us.”

Shayna Lenius, Parent

Watertown, WI

“All the children LOVED it. They kept coming in to the office raving and thanking me for bringing you to them. Several of the teachers were also very impressed and said that you were the best speaker/author that they had ever heard and they have seen plenty!”

MaryEllen Eaton, PTA President/Nurse, Stafford Elem School

Stafford Springs, CT

“I like the fact that I could be brought back to what matters the most, the whole child. School environments today focus so much on students reaching proficiency that we tend to ignore the social-emotional aspect of the students. It was a great reminder.”

Classroom Teacher, DeBerry Elementary School

Springfield, MA

“Dearest Renata, Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity for a visit from you. I must tell you that one of our teachers told me that she fought back tears during your presentation. It touched her heart. You have been given a beautiful message to share!”

Terri Dipiero, Principal, Bishop Mussio Elementary School

Steubenville, OH

“I like that addressing the strengths of a teacher was addressed. I think we don’t practice this enough as a staff and find it would bring more community back to our school.”

Classroom Teacher, Wolf Swamp Road School

Longmeadow, MA

“Our school had author Renata Bowers for 3 presentations: Pre-K & K; 1st through 3rd; 4th through 8th. She was passionate, enthusiastic, and motivating. She catered her presentation appropriately for all levels. The audience was glued. I would highly recommend her.”
