Comment from a life coach from London: "I read Marie-Claire Tetteh's children's story Betty the Firefly and Angeline the Angelfish to the reception class of Woodside Infants School on Friday 8th April 2011. The class consisted of 18 5-6 years old children from a variety of cultural and religious backgrounds. The children very much enjoyed the story and all appeared very engrossed in the tale. They asked very relevant questions. The children then did some related craft work using themes from the story.
I would be happy to read further stories by this very promising children's author and the children's teachers were also very impressed with the calibre of the story writing and themes and concepts explored. I feel that the themes explored in this author's books are very appropriate and relevant to today's child and the issues that they face as they grow into young adults."
Since a young age I seemed to have had the knack to say the right thing to friends and family going through some difficulties. And they felt better for it. At the time I made nothing of it, thinking anyone could have said that. Being interested in personality and spiritual development, I came to realise that this was a gift. I also studied listening skills and life coaching. These skills came very handy whilst raising my two children, who are all grown up and talented young people. My daughter created and took the photo (see below) and my son designed the ebook cover. That's the proof of the pudding.
