Listening to Our Nature
In Our world.
There is a lot to navigate for a young maturing conscious being.
The intention of my books are to take a moment of a child’s day and
place them at the centre
To respect their integral significance
And to acknowledge what children intuitively know...
...is the source of deep learning,
in fact the key of
Nature is within us
About the Book

The book made me feel smarter than I think I am.
Like I was in my own world outside.
The story made me feel more protected and alive.
