    No Bullying Around

    M. LaVora Perry has written a book that truly reads from the heart. The character descriptions are fresh, honest and open -- not the standard way of describing physical features. For educators -- a great story to initiate a discussion about bullies. Children were very responsive and involved during the telling of the story (especially the end of Chapter 2) and had lots to say regarding bullies and how to handle situations peacefully. This is a story to treasure!

    What the world needs now

    Both my daughter and I feel enriched for meeting Carli and her brave friend, Taneesha Bey-Ross. The bully is so frequently a part of our children's lives, this story about meeting the challenge of the bully is of great value to any family with children. Beyond that, as Christians, we valued the opportunity to look into a window on Buddist practice. As the sister of a disabled woman, I especially felt pulled to Carli. What the Carli's of the world need now is Taneesha. She is a treasure from the heart. Jan Annino Godown, author of Family Fun in Florida

    Taneesha's Treasures of the Heart

    Very sweet, carefully constructed, full of humanism and easy for children to read. I was so impressed by the work.
