The author of this Book...
Maureen Lynah was born and raised in Massachusetts. As a child she loved listening to: fairy tales, fables and stories which had a magical theme. As she grew older she developed a deep appreciation for metaphysical teachings, especially those that are earth centered. Maureen has a M.Ed from Lesley College in Early Childhood Education. She lives in New Hampshire with her husband and dog Boston.
I recommend this Book because...
I felt the approach is one that while aimed at children, applies across the board to adults as well. The book presents in a new and fresh way the opportunity to examine the planet we both live on and need to survive.
From the extraordinary and eye catching cover to design and layout of the book, it pulls the reader in and actively encourages the reader to participate.
