Do You Want To Meet Your Grandma? (Signed Hardback)
Do you want to meet your Grandma? is a humorous, insightful and interactive book for young children about our shared universal ancestors. Through delightful rhymes and enchanting watercolour illustrations, it explores not just who these ancestors were and how we are still like them, but what our ancestor grandmothers might have to teach us about living full, happy and meaningful lives. Complete with moments of suspense and hilarious reactions, this is not just a story of human evolution, but that of the whole universe. Young readers will love its humour and playfulness and adults will appreciate its original take on evolution, wonder and life.
So each time you wonder who you are and from where you came, just think about your Grandmas, who for all of us are the same!
The Kava Story…..well at least a small part of it!
Kava (piper methysticum) is a shrub that grows across the Pacific region. Noble kava has been cultivated by Pacific people of hundreds of years to possess higher levels of the beneficial kavalactones, the chemical compounds naturally found in kava plants responsible for most of the desirable effects of kava and only trace amounts (low enough to avoid toxicity) of flavokavains, which are harmful to liver and bladder health. Clever eh?!
It is non-alcoholic, non-opioid, and non-hallucinogenic.
Kava plays a central role in the social and ceremonial lives of many Pacific islanders and has done so for hundreds of years. Kava preparation traditionally includes grinding, grating or pounding the roots of the plant and then infusing with water. Kava drinkers appreciate the pleasant, warm, cheerful and relaxed feeling it provides.
These are exciting days for kava growers in the Pacific and for kava drinkers in Australia. We’re proud to be part of it as a way of building stronger and enduring connections between Australia and the Pacific.
