Beginnings of the Little Red Suitcase
"My favorite part of the story is learning about Teresa’s ancestors, specifically Princess Ziba. It is my favorite part because of the interesting adventures she goes on, but more importantly because this section leaves me wanting to know more. While I realize this book may be for young children, as an adult I found it to be very engaging and feel it could be a good read for people of all ages."

“I enjoyed reading the book and the adventures helped to keep me interested in reading. My favorite part of the story is when Princess Ziba travels to the new world. It reminds me of what we have learned in history, which is one of my favorite subjects in school.”

"In this fun and engaging story Teresa visits her grandparents with her brother, Tyler, in hopes of discovering more about the little red suitcase. Will her grandmother finally tell her the origins of the suitcase? Are there more adventures to be had? Read the book and find out! I thought it was a cute, engaging story. It made me think of my own visits with my grandparents."
