We start off with Ms. Linda M. Gilliam a retired educator who continues to dedicate her expertise to helping children learn more effectively. She uses a unique twist by bringing in her furry friends Moogli and Phenom to help her out:"Moogli and Me: Our Magical Adventures!" Moogli and Me is a humorous look at the UNLIKELY relationship between a retired race horse, Phenom Pharaoh and a barn cat, Magical Moogli who lives in his stable. Told in a photographically illustrated story book, emphasizing important values for children, this book will be a treasured addition to any child's library.  The book is available on Amazon and Create Space. Proceeds go toward St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital! www.teacheradvocate.com
