Faces of Time


A children's board book written by Mary Gordon that supports the Roots of Empathy organization.


Beautiful full-colour portraits of 10 diverse babies accompany text in five languages (English, Cree Syllabics, Inuktitut, Mohawk, Ojibway), which serve to strengthen the emotional bond between parent and child.




"We begin with love," Mary Gordon states in the book, "Love is the cement of the future that connects us all in a universal chain of possibility. The birth of each baby is the birth of hope. Through loving parenting babies develop empathy. This ability to understand how others feel is prerequisite for conflict resolution, altruism, and a peaceful tomorrow. Our future rests on the breath of the little babies. How we care for them will determine how time will care for us and future generations."
