Here’s a news release related to the production of the wonderful book “Cuatro Ciénegas: La mirada de sus niños” that was produced over the past couple of years by a wonderful group of artist/teachers working with Valeria Souza.  With the support of the Carlos Slim Foundation and the World Wildlife Fund, apparently the book will be distributed to classrooms all across Mexico.  It’s a fabulous example of “place-based” learning and conveys a lot of fundamental geological, chemical, and biological concepts in the context of art, dance, theater, and play.  A truly amazing accomplishment for our friend Valeria and her colleagues.
