Elsie Dinsmore

by Martha Finley

My daughter, Abby, has always loved to read and has devoured the Elsie Series we have. But being diagnosed with a multitude of learning disabilities she could not write, not even copy words off the board at school. We got her very extensive Cognitive Retraining Therapy which worked wonders. Abby can now write very well and the Elsie Series has influenced her style, fluency, grammer and vocabulary in many ways. I thank God and Martha Finley for creating the Elsie Dinsmore Collection. It literally has changed my Abby's life.

She has always been a very spiritually sensative girl but now she has a greater understanding of how Godliness is applied in the life of a child. She has even written her own stories as "A Day in the Life of Elsie" in which she has taken the characters and settings and expounded on situations and circumstances that she imsgines could have happened. I am deeply indebted to the wonderful, late Martha Finley for her writings. How could she have known that more than 150 years later she would have such an impact?
