Dreamers Radio is pleased to welcome April Manning, author of Neighborwood: Earth Literacy for Kids.
Taken from her Amazon page:
"I love to learn and have earned my BS in biology with a minor in chemistry and recently acquired my MA in Earth Literacy. The Earth Literacy program is interdisciplinary learning which fosters the capacity to understand the natural world in order to ensure sustainability of the planet as a habitat for life. I am a firm believer in the importance of diversity and want to teach this importance to the next generation.
The intent and vision for the Neighborwood series is to connect children with nature to teach Earth Literacy to them. Earth Literacy provides interdisciplinary learning which fosters the capacity to understand the natural world in order to ensure sustainability of the planet as a habitat for life. These concepts need to be taught at the beginning of one's education.
The Neighborwood series consists of sets of books that illustrate various earth literacy themes, such as the importance of diversity, recycling, and sense of place. The animals that reside in the Neighborwood are the characters that will be learning the themes along with the reader. The guide through the journey will be the Neighborwood land ambassador, Lamb."

When unexplained earthquakes hit the small town of Twelve Acres and dozens of people go missing, the Light witches discover their most feared enemy, Archard, is still alive.

As the Light Covenant fumbles to defend against Archard’s sadistic intentions, Simon’s magic grows inexplicably more powerful—even dangerous. Willa throws all her efforts into solving the mystery of Simon’s transformation, but when the events of the past storm into the present, the couple’s future changes forever.

Tonight’s broadcast is all about community. In that past David Levins and I have discussed The Journey of the Hero, as outlined by Joseph Campbell’s seminal work, Hero With a Thousand Faces. For this episode we are going to focus on the final stage of any hero’s journey, in which the hero returns home. In other words, returns to his or her community. So, we’ll talk about the hero’s relation to his or her community, and the consequences for all parties involved if the hero decides to not return, what are the benefits of a hero’s return, the different types of communities, the importance of having others in our lives, the degradation of a community, and a few examples of community in literature, and the arts.
At 8:00 we will unvail a new segment called the Writer's Block.

THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE: Whether you like it or not, major events in life happen and then come the circumstances. Samuel Lover, the famed songwriter, composer and novelist, once said “Circumstances are the rulers of the weak; they are but the instruments of the wise.” Getting a good grasp of the role that events and circumstances play in your life is essential to you understanding how to shape more positive outcomes to challenging situations. Achieving this level of consciousness is also essential to you recognizing and valuing the difference between responding versus simply reacting to a circumstance. During the month of November, Life Changing Talk Radio will interview noted authors and interesting personalities who have developed unique approaches to crafting their responses to some of life’s most challenging and perplexing circumstances. Through their knowledge, courage, commitment, faith and determination they have and continue to make a difference not only in their lives but also in the lives of so many others.
