Tell me a Story by Lisa Suhay (The mother of two young boys, ages 5 and 4, with a third on the way, she was constantly finding ways to explain life’s difficulties to her children. She would take their real life problems and assign the people involved an animal character. Then she would weave a tale of how the problem was solved.  One night, while she sat brooding over a problem of her own, she said a little prayer and asked for a solution. What she really asked for was to let go of anger or hurt or whatever the fear of the day was. She sat down to clear away her feelings and approach the problem through the eyes of a frog, a dog, a bird, as she did for the boys.  The result is contained in the pages of this book.)
