". . . The sooner children hear these words, the better off they will be. --Thomas Berry, author of "Dream of the Earth."
Jennifer Morgans work as a storyteller, author, educator and environmental advocate flows out of her love of the natural world and cosmology. As former director of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey, she started numerous educational and marketing programs for farmers and consumers, both locally and nationally. Currently she is an adjunct staff member at Genesis Farm, teaching the Sacred Universe Story. A portion of Ms. Morgans royalties from the sale of this book are donated to earth literacy centers. Her storytelling evolved from bedtime stories for her son who wanted to know more and more, even the texture of the edge of the Universe. She believes that our cosmology stories fundamentally shape us, our relationships, our work, our play, our culture, our institutions, our everything. Jennifer is also the author of Born With A Bang: The Universe Tells Our Cosmic Story.
Dana Lynne Andersen, M.A., is a multi-media artist, playwright and teacher with degrees in philosophy and consciousness studies.

She is founder of Awakening Arts, a network of artists who "affirm the noble purpose of art as a vehicle for uplifting the human spirit.Dana is also the illustrator of Born With A Bang: The Universe Tells Our Cosmic Story
