Volcanos and Floods

Beth, a PhD student who is doing field research in Ecuador took Here You Are to the elementary school children in Banos this March, in spite of volcano eruptions and floods washing out roads and access to this area since 2006, and more eruptions just recently. Beth had found the book on Amazon and had responded to my offer to make Here You Are available to teachers and people in the professions of helping children.

She sent this picture of the teacher who she works with, and her son, holding Here You Are - somewhere high in the Ecuadorian mountains. She said they were " thrilled, to say the least" and I can say the same about the way I feel seeing this photograph.

Thank You, Beth, for your efforts on behalf of the children in remote Ecuador, and for sending this sweet picture.
