SAMPLE OF BOOK FEEDBACK:
Dimitri Garcia, Principal, Perryton Junior High School: "I kept coming back to the notion of equitable exposure to life experiences.. [The First Thirty] shows that a simple meal can expand students' horizons and provide them opportunity."
Mindy Huberty, Youth Worker, Arkansas: "An uplifting story for middle school kids and the mentors, teachers and grandparents who believe in them."
Theresa Taylor, Middle School Assistant Principal, Texas: "...demonstrates the power within each of us to spark positive change... helps middle schoolers view the world from a different perspective."
Richard Freedman, Director, South African Holocaust & Genocide Foundation: "The First Thirty has given me much food for thought and I am quite sure will resonate with me in the years to come. Today is Youth Day in South Africa which recognises the contribution that young people have made in the struggle against apartheid and the rebuilding of our country after apartheid. It is also meant to inspire young people to take on their own potential and to find their way in the world. This book shows how that is possible and that it mostly the curved line which offers the greatest opportunity for growth and for something special to be achieved...."
