ABC in Harmony is a cheerful picture book that delivers a profound message about how we should treat each other and the planet we live on. The bright pictures and simple text in this literacy tool for primary grades can also be used to encourage classroom dialogue about empathy, responsibility and environmental stewardship. The book goes beyond the ABCs to celebrate uniqueness and diversity while engaging students in thoughtful reflection about our global interconnections.

I LOVE this book! I love everything this book stands for, I love how easy it is to read and most of all I love that my daughter loves it too! At only a year old it is by far her favorite bedtime story. Although she may be too little to get some of the messages, I am able to promote her vocabulary with positive and interesting words. The simple, clear and colorful illustrations grab her attention and she is always wanting to flip back through the pages once we have finished reading. I highly recommend this book for every child.

About the author (2011)

My sole purpose for writing ABC in Harmony was for soul purpose.

No matter how uniquely different as people we are from one to one, it is of pivotal importance that we remain mindful of our interconnectedness... the invisible thread weaving us all together~ from coast to coast, from shore to shore. This delicate thread knows no border, no boundaries.

If we were to look back to mother Earth, from Saturn, Venus, or Mars, we would see only one planet, one people.

Our children stand on the threshold of life, awaiting our direction. Their talents and potential are unlimited. There are no special roadmaps, specific routes, or shortcuts we can offer them for their journeys. Every child has their own unique path to follow.

The one essential key we can offer our children to light their way in the world is love.

ABC in Harmony is my tribute to every child standing at the starting gate of life.
