You'll travel to Egypt, Athens, Persia, Sparta, Phoenecia and many temples and oracles. All but five of the characters are from the historical records - you will recognize some and meet new ones. All the battles and political intrigue happened.

"Come Join the Circle" is a 'how' and 'why' handbook for teachers and all who love to work with children in classrooms, religious education sessions, after school programs or wherever you and bunch of kids are gathered. Published in 2006, the research gathered is more than valid today. In fact, much of the material in this book is only now reaching mainstream education's inclusion into curriculum.  The three skills of rhythm, music and movement done together are architects of an integrated, problem-solving socially adjusted brain. Oh, and it's fun for everyone, including adults. Available at  in papberback, Kindle (epub) and PDF
