Jewels Maloney, M.Ed., Ed.D Creativity, started learning from young children in the early 1980's in early childhood centers, and in the 90's became a professor of education. She felt a mission to assist teachers to develop their senses of awe, wonder, joy, and curiosity. Jewels taught teachers in the ways she wanted them to work with children. Creativity was the focus of explorations and collaborative learning so that teachers viscerally felt what is was like to be free to learn.
Jewels co-founded The Sweetgrass School and the Harbin Community Child Care Center to demonstrate that we can trust children to grow and learn through play, nurturing environments, and independence. Jewels currently lives in Sedona, AZ and is available to speak to groups of parents, teachers, teacher educators, and groups who want to create new ways of living and being and new ways of letting children learn and grow as individuals and in community. " I truly love to share all I have learned about creativity and the human spirit! I want to answer any and all questions that may arise from the ideas in this book. Please email me with any questions, and these will become part of an interactive blogspot to be announced soon, and a follow up book!"
"Everyone and everything connected with Mother Earth is in an awesome process of transformation and ascension. Ascension is the increase in frequency and vibration of every electron comprising life on this planet and all of creation. We are each opening our hearts wider and deeper, feeling and seeing and hearing from the perspective of our immortal soul, and en-light-ening. Our creativity is being catapulted into visions of how to bring a New Earth into existence. We are all destined to co-create a sacred existence on our beautiful Mother Earth.
As has been said for many cycles of time, "The Teacher is Within"! Each of us carries the wisdom, beauty, love and truth within our hearts and Knows that we are Here Now to Make a Difference - to be here for the great Turning of the Ages, and to Celebrate as we create a new reality that much better serves the holy beings that we are."

This book is right in tune with our times. I agree with Jewels Maloney, author of Every Child is Holy, that children need to have the opportunity to learn from inquiry, to spend great amounts of time outdoors, learning with and through nature, and to have caregivers that understand this and how to help children learn and to help nurture them as they grow. If we could have more schools like Jewels started, the world would be a better place. Thank you Jewels for sharing your wisdom and knowledge with us! I will spread the word to parents and others, and encourage them to read your book. This information is just right for our times, when children are inundated with the electronic world and spend less and less time outdoors. May your wise words help to change the face of education.
