I don't know where to put this, but my favorite Ellen episodes is when she gives a house or car away to that women who said to her "no more". She was so over whelmed and grateful that Ellen kept having her back. I love all the episodes where Ellen gives to someone deserving. Ellen is so self aware and blessed she makes me feel that way too every time she does this.

Many animal rights advocates and education professionals across the nation have already expressed strong support for the book as a teaching tool. You can see some reviews on our website:
