    Eli's Birthday Brunch was created for Kristin's family and her hope for a healthier earth and society. "I do what I can to make lasting connections with living things through organic gardening, harvesting healthy food and creating things."

    Eli's Birthday Brunch exposes readers to captivating, quality artwork. Eric Carle's books inspired the collage technique used for these illustrations and an interesting example for young people to compare and emulate.

    Eli's Birthday Brunch offers a unique format providing examples of positive conversational language at the top of the page synergistic with the storyline at the bottom of the page. Readers pick up the conversational phrases and more often use them in their day-to-day lives, creating a powerful, positive effect on relationships.

As a friend who survived a war noted, "To make peace with each other, we need to make peace with the earth."

    Since our intellectual community has nearly abandon the word conscience, Conscience Studio committed to supporting people and communities in experimenting with conscience in daily life and discovering the liberty and joy of conscientious living.

    We hope this book inspires you to do simple, healthy things together that strengthen your relationships with the earth and with one another.
