A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR:
Thank you for visiting this site and for your mutual interest in teaching unity. It is hoped that this easy-to-use teacher's guide will serve as a valuable starting place in helping children to not only understand some of the challenges we face, but to identify potential solutions, to develop an increasingly multicultural perspective, to build skills and capacity, and to become empowered to act as a positive force for justice and harmony in the world. I am profoundly grateful to my loving family without whose support this book would not have been possible.
