This beautiful little EA/TEF book written by Vanessa Munsch was designed to empower children, educate the public, and serve as a conversation starter for children to explain what EA/TEF means in their own life.  The proceeds from this book will be donated to Christy's Courage and other EA/TEF non profits.  Please help bring awareness to EA/TEF by purchasing you copy.  Thank you for your support.
