Your host Karen Palmer of www.lawofattractionmagic.com welcomes an amazing Mother/daughter team. Nara is the author of a beautiful children's book, "Cows are too big to eat". Nara is five years old who lives in Riara, Nairobi and is from Kenya. She says she just thought of the book which is why she wanted to do it. She loves animals. She thinks it is important not to eat meat because you upset your animal friends. JC Niala is a creative whose work became informed by her experience of motherhood. She started off making documentaries and writing plays in her teens and later the birth of her daughter lead her into the world of children's books. As she works from home her daughter Nara got to witness firsthand the process of book production from inception to working with an illustrator to the book going to press. As vegetarians they decided to work on a book together in support of their animal friends. They live with a dog called Ours (the french for bear). i think on the show we would like to talk about the importance of advocacy on behalf of animals and the joy of living alongside them. In Kenya we are fortunate to have a lot of animals still living in their natural habitat but their existence is increasingly threatened. Nara can can certainly talk about the joys of living with a dog and about how this teaches us to understand animals all around us. I can talk about the process of giving children (and animals) a voice through the creative process.
