Dear Patrice,
I love your story because I have family in Mexico and I learned that no matter where I go my family will always be there. I missed my family since I read your book. I learned a beautiful lesson that when my mom goes to work and I stay all alone I feel some one there. Thank you for everything.
 
Love, 

Mariela

Dear Patrice,
 I enjoy the story The Invisible String. The invisible string reminded me that I have another family in Africa. Patrice, you are a great author. Patrice, use your brain to make other stories. The invisible string taught me a lesson that I can reach somebody that is far away.
 
Love, 

Everett

Dear Patrice,
I like this story because it talks about families like when people die it reaches all the way to heaven. And even if you are alone it will still love you whenever. I love the way you say that the mother told them to not worry ‘cause there is an invisible string that keeps us together.
 
Your friend,

Dear Patrice,
I like the book The Invisible String because it’s about a string that connects from you to your mom or dad or uncle even if you are in China. I like the invisible string because you won’t ever have to worry because you’re connected by the invisible string. 
 
Sincerely, 

Tijani

Dear Mrs. Karst
Hi! I felt happy because you showed me that if someone is far from you, they will still be connected with a string inside your heart. Books that you wrote are wonderful. Did someone cry when they heard it?
 
Sincerely, 

Camila

Dear Patrice,
Your story is very touching. It showed me that when you’re spending the night at someone’s house, you’ll always have your family with you and anywhere I go. I will always love my family.
 
Your friend,

Dear Patrice,
The Invisible String made me realize no matter what my brother does to me the invisible string is still there. No matter what happens we’re still brothers, and all my family has the string.

Dear Patrice,
I liked the story The Invisible String because it helps us not to be afraid of lightning, and I like it because it is an entertaining story. And when somebody passes away the invisible string is still with them.

The book was great. I liked it because I had a bunch of fun learning about the invisible string. Now I know that it doesn’t matter where you are, the invisible string is with you.

Dear Patrice Karst,
The invisible string is cool because it never breaks or gets cut. I think that is awesome.  I like how the invisible string is long and strong.

Dear Mrs. Karst,
I think you’re right… that the invisible string is with you all the way. When I first read the story. I was happy because I learned something. I will tell everyone about the invisible string.

I liked The Invisible String because I never knew that there was ever an invisible string until you wrote this book. I’m going to use it from now on.

I like your book The Invisible String. You might have to make over a thousand books because so many people like that book.
Sincerely, 

Autumn

Dear Mrs. Karst,
I had known about the invisible string since the 1st grade. I pull on the string every day, when I think of my mom and dad.
Sincerely, 

Walter

Dear Mrs. Karst,
My feelings about the book were that while my daddy is in Miami I can pull on my string, and my dad will fill my heart.

 
Sincerely,

Dear Patrice Karst,
I enjoyed reading The Invisible String. I liked the book because it made me believe that there’s an invisible string that connects us to everything. You taught us that the string was made out of love.
 
Sincerely, 

Nitika

Dear Ms. Karst,
I really liked your book The Invisible String. What I liked about the story was when the string could reach anywhere on this Earth.
 
I felt love in my heart, because when you said that the string can pull your heart, and that’s what I felt in my heart.
 
Sincerely, 

Davin

Dear Mrs. Karst,
I felt happy because the book showed me that when someone I love is far away that I will tug on the string and they can tug back. I liked your book very, very much. I felt a little confused because how can a string go so far away even to outer space. I enjoyed your book a whole lot. I think that happiness is what your book is about.
 
Sincerely, 

Cinthya

Dear Patrice Karst,
In The Invisible String I want to know if you are the mom. Even though you are the author, what do you enjoy about the book? The book was great I think. I can’t wait to share it with my family. That story is the best.
 
Did your mom tell you about The Invisible String? You kind of look like the mom in the story.
 
Sincerely, 

Tiffany

Dear Patrice,
I love your book The Invisible String. It’s very heart-warming and touching. Now I know that when I miss my family the invisible string will let me know they’re next to me when I need them to be. Now I know that if I go somewhere, the invisible string will be with me. One day I hope I will be a good author just like you.
 
Sincerely, 

Your Friend Endia

Dear Patrice,
I think that story is nice because I know that my string goes from California to Vietnam, where my family lives.
 
Love,

 Justin

Dear Patrice Karst,
Thank you for coming to talk to us. The Invisible String is a very good book. The mother seems like you a lot. The book is a great idea from a little family. I bet the Invisible String story helps little kids.

Dear Patrice Karst,
I love the book The Invisible String. It explains that you’ll always be together no matter how far or mad you are. You still love each other.
 
Sincerely,

Dear Mrs. Karst
Thank you for sharing your book with us. I think it is an amazing book. I love the words you used. It is great for kids and adults. You are right. The invisible string can touch the hearts of families everywhere! It is one of the best!

 Sincerely,

Dear Patrice,
Your story was very nice because it actually taught a lesson. And the lesson was that you’re never alone. And what made the class like the story and enjoy it was because of the pictures. They made us laugh because they went great with the words.  I enjoyed it very, very, very, but very much!
 
Sincerely, 

Jesus

Dear Mrs. Karst,
I like you story about the invisible string. I feel very close to my family, mostly my mom and dad and my brother. My family likes it when I tell them about the invisible string. Then they ask me what the invisible string is. I said we are always together by the string. They asked me if it goes away when we get mad at each other. No, it does not go away.
 
Sincerely, 

Hong-A

On author’s day I met Mrs. Karst. She is the author of The Invisible String. I felt excited to see her. After reading the book, I wanted to meet her.
 
She got the idea for the invisible string from her son. She told her son there was an invisible string attached to her heart. She told him that idea because he would cry when he went to school.
 
Sincerely,

Sajah

Dear Mrs. Karst,
When you saw us you were so happy, so does that mean you like kids? I liked when you said the invisible string can reach anyone. When you were up there, were you nervous? I liked your speech, and did you publish any more books? Well, I hope you did because I wanna read another book of yours.
 
I hope you keep writing because I love, love your books, and when I read those books they really touched my heart.
 
Good luck! I hope I see you in the future. bye.
Sincerely,

Kalesita

Dear Mrs. Karst,
I loved your book. Is it really true? If there is an invisible string, are there invisible scissors? 
 
My name is Ashley. I am nine years old. My favorite books are science fiction books. When I grow up I want to be an author or a doctor. But ever since you gave that speech I think I’m going to be an author.
 
I’ve written many stories throughout my life. But I don’t think they are good enough to be published. Well maybe three or four but not all of them. Do you have any pointers?
P.S. write back.
 
Sincerely, 

Ashley
