Inspirational Feb 25, 2006
This book is such a treasure for children and adults as well. I recently shared this book with a local school in Fiji, while I was there doing a bit of volunteer work. These children absolutely loved it. It opened their minds to the possibilities awaiting them in life. Use Your Voice and read this to your children and see how we can all make a positive difference in our world.
