Trina Paulus, already an artist, philosopher, sculptor and community builder when she wrote Hope for the Flowers, has lived an unconventional life including over a decade at Grailville, an educational center and organic farm in Loveland, Ohio. She has spent time abroad with the international Grail Movement in France and Akhmin, Egypt, where she helped start a women’s weaving and embroidery co-op. She is vice-president of Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute and Cornucopia Network of New Jersey. Her home in New Jersey is a hub of environmental action and learning.From School Library Journal:
Grade 7 UpAThe ageless, timeless story of caterpillars, Strip and Yellow, unfolds as the author, Trina Paulus, reads it with as much enthusiasm as she had when it was originally published 25 years ago. It is a very simple story of life, death, goals, alternatives, anxiety, hope, and becoming which can be used by students on many levels, with each person gleaning an appropriate moral. Paulus' speech is gentle, and her belief in the story is shown in her very expressive voice. She enunciates very clearly, has good pacing, and changes tone and speech for the different characters. Short, pleasant musical interludes provide appropriate breaks between each chapter and set the mood for upcoming events. On Side 2 Paulus discusses the background for the story from the events in her life and the importance of various symbols used in the plot. Purchase for anyone who has challenges to overcomeAthis story could have as much of an audience as Jonathan Livingston Seagull.
