Advance Praise for What Freedom Means to Me
“I love this book! It’s sure to be a classic.
Transgenerational...What Freedom Means to Me appeals to all audiences,
from newborn infants to grandparents.
Educational, social, spiritual...this book encompasses it all, in a time when
freedom has never been a more important pursuit.”
– Lisa M. Fiala, LCSW
“What Freedom Means to Me is a beautifully illustrated children’s book that helps
make an abstract and difficult concept understandable to even the very youngest
reader. The colorful and very expressive illustrations are not only delightful to
look at but also support the text in a way that helps emergent readers predict
the language to make reading more independent. What Freedom Means to Me
is touching in it’s timeliness and meaningful to readers of all ages.”
