Review by: Michelle Green, People Magazine - September 7, 2005
"Fresh and wonderfully readable, this quirky book is perfect for parents eager to cultivate their kids' fantasy lives and foster a passion for literature."
Review by: Laura Miller, New York Times Book Review - September 7, 2005
"Only a reader as attuned to realism as Feinberg could have puzzled out so nuanced a defense of imagination in children's lives."
Review: Publishers Weekly - September 7, 2005
"The implications of this small book are quite large. Parents will want to read it, as will writers, publishers and educators."
Review by: Noelle Oxenhandler, Author of The Eros of Parenthood - September 7, 2005
"With this book, Barbara Feinberg has created something quite extraordinary: a profound and penetrating critique that unfolds like a mystery. Pursuing her own sense that something is wrong in the schoolhouse, Welcome to Lizard Motel identifies a herd of dangerously sacred cowsóand slaughters them, one by one."
Review by: Susan Linn, Boston Globe - September 4, 2005
"When we place the steady diet of 'problem' novels in the context of the hours children spend being electronically bombarded by graphic, unremitting trauma, Feinberg's concerns . . . become not just comprehensible, but urgent."
