It's time for a story.

Come gather round.
This month I want to feature a book that has been given to our classroom by one of the parents at the Living Wisdom School of Seattle.
The title is Om Baby. I was excited to read the cover to find out that Schamet Horsfield lived in Seattle. But when I contacted her, she had moved to New Zealand to spread her vibration and teaching of Om
Here is a short video of her reading the story and sharing her inspiration about how she first wrote the book.
We began reading this at the beginning of the school year. The children love this book and return to it again and again.
To extend the learning about communities that Schamet introduces from this book we created our own community maps to connect us all together. This book was instrumental in preparing the class for reaching out to all our friends and family and building community.
|This is the first phase of our community map the children made. They are pasting on their homes to our map.|
This is the '3' D map that we finished. It was on display in the hallway for all our parents to see.
|We also visited the local Ananda Community to share in the fall harvest of fruits and vegetables.|
I have lived in an intentional community for over 18 years now and it is a way of life for me.
I love this sweet book and the many conversations, concepts, and ideas that can be shared about communities with our children. They will be the stewards of our planet in this new age.
I hope you enjoy this book along with your family, students, and friends.
