Praise for Mother Earth Mother Earth is a book for the ages, one that parents should read to their children for generations-for its message of healing is one we must take to heart. -Elizabeth Hall Magill, author of Defining Sexism The story form of the message of environmental awareness brings it home in a personal way. The illustrations by Elisabeth Slettnes are a big part of the appeal, as are the quotations. I highly recommend Mother Earth. -Marilyn McFarlane, author of Sacred Stories: Wisdom from World Religions Trista and Elisabeth have created ather gorgeous illustrated story to impart wise, holistic values...this time about our environment, and done elegantly in metaphor and narrative. If only every child received this book from her or his mother or father, how differently we might treat Mother Earth-with gratitude, respect and awe. -Amy Logan, author of The Seven Perfumes of Sacrifice
