I am currently reading Children Who Are Not Yet Peaceful and want to send a note of praise, gratitude and admiration for the book and Donna’s amazing work with children! I am a Children’s House (3-6) guide at a school in Springfield, IL and recently decided to read this highly-recommended book (even though it targets the 6-9 community).  I fully believe in the inherent power within each child to achieve the level of peacefulness, cooperation and empathy described in the book.

Thank you, Donna, for such a beautifully written account of the amazing work you have done with children!  All teachers need access to this information.

Dear Denise,

Thank you for your gratifying words. I’m so glad the book is serving children well. They certainly made me who I am. What a wonderful life you have chosen!  May it be joyful and challenging, inspiring and fully engaging. I wish all things bright and beautiful to you and the children as you work in that thorny and rose-filled garden of the soul.
