Reviews:
The Power of Imagination. The delightful "The Things a String Can Be", by Cleveland author Julie Goulis and North Royalton illustrator John Ferguson, is a picture book that demonstrate the power of imagination. In this book, the rain has stopped and Sam can go out to play, but his toys are all put away. The only thing he can find to play with is a wet string in a puddle. But in Sam's mind, the string becomes Tarzan's jungle vine and a jump rope. - Akron Beacon Journal

This book is adorable, and young children will be wowed by the bold, colorful graphics. Commendable is the premise of transforming a string into wondrous objects merely by employing one's imagination. Not only is this theme important for children, it is essential in these days of video games and mind numbing television. - Rockland Review

Children's author Julie Goulis teams up with artist and illustrator John Ferguson in two outstanding picture books for children. Both of these superbly created picture books are enhanced with a free activity guideline/lessons planner at the end of their stories that are fun and educational complements. “The Things A String Can Be” and “Something Shiny, Something Round” are picture book springboards for young imaginations long after the books have been read and returned to school and community library shelves. - Midwest Book Review

Finally! A readily-available, very inexpensive answer to the eternal cry 'Mom, I'm bored! There's nothing to do!' Take your child in hand, sit down together, and enjoy reading "The Things a String Can Be". Imagine, all our fancy toys and computer games and it's really just as simple as sitting side-by-side with a book and a piece of string. How wonderful. - Jennifer Elin Cole, author of "I Love You All The Time" and mother of three
