Being a kid in this modern world can be difficult at times; confusing, overwhelming and even a little frightening. It's hard to know what decisions to make and what actions to take, because temptations, dares and opportunities lurk around every corner. There seems to be so much more for kids to be wary of, aware of and ready for these days - things that their parents, guardians and teachers never had to contend with when they were growing up.
Throughout the history of mankind, ancient cultures believed that we can communicate with and learn from the animals - that each animal offers its own unique insights and teachings, which can greatly enrich and deepen our lives, assisting us in communing with the forces of nature.
Taking this ancient principle and adapting it into an easy-to-use oracle card set, the 'Creature Teacher Cards' and the accompanying guidebook offer daily guidance, nurturing and practical support from the animal kingdom, specifically catered towards today's young people, as they deal with real issues in a real and confronting world.
Drawing on the author's own life experiences as a child, and later as a father, school teacher and mentor to 'troubled' youth, this beautifully illustrated card set offers a powerful, passionate and to-the-point wisdom to gently encourage young people to heal the past, stand confidently in the present and embrace the future as empowered and inspired individuals.

In times past, it was not uncommon for a seeker of knowledge to request the advice of an Elder; someone skilled in the ability to commune with the energies of nature. Elders were seen as direct links between the people and Spirit, with their words held in high esteem. When questions were raised, the Elder would take up a small pouch, perhaps containing claws, teeth, whiskers and bones of sacred animals which, after a quick shake, would be upended, the contents permitted to spill haphazardly onto the ground....
