Review:

There is a gentle, nurturing attitude inside this book. Just as a llama mama would nurture her young cria, the reader is guided and watched over with an absence of pushy dominance. Continuing with this metaphor, it would be safe to say that the language and structure of this wonderful book speaks to us as a mother camelid would - softly, from a distance, alert to everything, guiding with confidence and yet ready to respond immediately when the situation signals danger. -- Francei Greth-Peto
