Author Bio
Sue Wiedermann ==============

Sue Wiedermann has over 30 years’ experience as an Early Childhood Teacher. Storytelling has always been an important aspect of her teaching, as she believes it is such a great way to initiate and maintain engagement with children. Stories are the beginnings of future learning about ourselves, our interactions with others, and about the world in which we live. Sue has practiced yoga for many years and has recently become a yoga and meditation teacher, with a special interest in yoga for children. She hopes that her stories may invite and encourage young children to explore and use their imagination in the great outdoors. She believes that we need to help children understand their ecological identity, so they see themselves as an integral part of the natural world and not superior to it. This in turn may help to develop future caretakers of our planet.
