Thank you for your information on the web sites for "World community of
old Trees" and "Project learning Tree." They will be extremely
helpful for our project. As far as recommending artists who deal with
self-esteem, pride, etc., I can't think of anyone off hand. However,
should someone come to mind, I will let you know. Sorry I wasn't of
much help for your project.

Susan Stinson
