Deborah Day – The Author and Publisher and the Creator of the Mindful Messages Summer Mentoring Program says, "I am very proud of this work. I really believe that the more our children know about their own culture and history, the more prepared they will be to deal with life challenges. Over the years, many parents, educators and mentors told me how they used my curriculum to supplement their home schooling and for their classroom curriculum and that it was a great resource. I know for my summer mentoring program for ages 8-14, it was easy to adapt the ideas and concepts and include them in the workshops and other activities."
"Spoken Word Curriculum ... educates, empowers, entertains and enlightens."
