My 3 children have read 3 of the books and they all loved them. Now they have moved on to my brother's children. Please keep writing.

I'm a teacher and have encouraged all my learners to read the Rocky Books. They are great reading and have helped the youngsters to understand a little more about the environment, poaching, climate change and even where we came from. Well done. These books should be mandatory reading for all youngsters throughout the world.

Wow - a new slant on our beginnings (Rocky and the Origins). A really interesting read and cleverly put together. I'm going to order the other books.

On behalf of Welkom High School I would like to thank you for coming to our school to talk to the Grade 9 learners about the Rocky project.

Since your visit to the school, I have observed a noted difference in the attitude of our learners. For one, they have certainly taken an interest in environmental issues. I have heard comments from them that were very positive. One of the boys wrote in his journal “I want to become a game ranger”. The learners' attitude to reading has also improved, as they found the visit so interesting. Another learner wrote in her journal “I can't wait to finish the book”.

Overall, I am really impressed by the level of awareness your visit has brought to the community…

I really enjoyed Rocky and the San Bushmen. Your use of language to depict the San names is so interesting.
