Conversation with Sheila Aaron and Danny Samuels.

Join us Wednesday on Eco-Ology Aug 3rd 2011

We look forward to thought provoking conversations with Sheila Aaron, author of a children’s book, I Am Glad I’m Me, The Power Of Love.
“I’m Glad I’m Me is written with the conviction that how messages of love are communicated between parents and children can positively shape a child’s personality, self-esteem, and – in later years – their approach to their own children. The timeless messages of I’m Glad I’m Me can benefit readers of all ages and stages of life.”
