Brod's presentation at Bowling Green State University's Literacy in the Park was an amazing and unique opportunity for my family. My sons, ages 5 and 3, were engaged during his entire poetry presentation.

Wow! Brod was unbelievable! Students and staff have been raving about his hilarious performances and the fact that out of all the authors we've had, they felt Brod was the best!

I enjoyed the energy he brought to his presentation and how passionate he felt about it. The part I liked the most was how he knew many of his poems. This showed how dedicated to his work he is and also gave us a good sense of who he was as a poet and a performer.

A principal of a high poverty school, I watch Brod Bagert challenge my students to become something more than what people believe they will become. I watch as my children see themselves in his poems and dream dreams that temporarily elevate them from the poverty in which they live and transport them into the world that he has created. I cannot say enough about the man that makes my children smile!

Brod's program captured everyoneâ€™s attention and after an hour, even our youngest Kindergarten children didn't want to say Good-Bye. His inspiring program prompted children to return to classrooms and insist on writing poetry. When asked if they enjoyed Brod's visit, all responses were cheers. He is a dynamic author that every child should experience, at least once.

When my two grandsons got in the car after school, the first thing they spoke of was the great time they had with Poet Brod. They remembered the poems and they recited several by heart. They got the message about writing and rewriting, courage in the face of fear, and using facial expressions in oral recitation. They thought he was very, very funny.

Brod Bagert's performance mesmerized students and faculty alike. One of our kindergarten teachers used her planning time to come back and enjoy the upper grades assembly. The local newspaper's photographer told me that Brod was the best he had ever seen.
