Remember This is the story of Maria, a Mayan girl who finds a lost family amulet through the help of two mystical jaguars. Maria begins her magical moonlit journey with the help of the Jaguar of the Night, an ancient Mayan deity who helps Maria to discover her amulet-and her precious, ancient heritage. When morning comes, Maria is transported home by the Jaguar of the day, who entreats, "Come and be joyous, for all Life is a gift."

In October 1997, artist Julie Mueller-Brown shared with me her fascination with the Mayan culture of Central America. She had just returned from a trip to Guatemala and Mexico where she found inspiration for her work as a painter and photographer. Moved by Julie's photographs and native artifacts, I suggested that we share her experience through the creation of a children's book. We worked together for several months to produce the story and illustrations that became Remember This.
Having been an elementary school teacher prior to founding the Savannah College of Art and Design in 1978, I realize the value of layering information to engage students in active, relative learning. Remember This includes a glossary for older readers, parents or teachers, in order to expand upon the concepts introduced in the narrative.
The dream of any writer is to have his or her words illustrated in a beautiful and meaningful way. Julie's paintings express the beauty of Mayan traditions and immediately draw readers of any age into the story. It is my hope that children and adults will be inspired as we were by the charisma and customs of the Mayan people.About the Author:
