My Gentle Barn, Creating a Sanctuary Where Animals Heal and Children Learn to Hope:

This was Ellie and her dog Simon, who was Ellie's best friend when she was a kid. They used to muck around in the lakes and watch the tadpoles turn into frogs each spring. They would walk through the woods and find salamanders and bunny rabbits and watch bats fly around at night and butterflies soar on lazy afternoons. Simon was her confidant, witness and teacher too. Simon showed Ellie that that she was lovable. Simon is in her book, "My Gentle Barn," coming out in only a few more days, We are so excited for you Ellie!

The story of how Ellie's life lead her to starting The Gentle Barn, the exciting animals we have loved, and the rescues we have done are all in this book. If you haven’t pre-ordered it, this is your last chance to do so and get a photo album of never before seen pictures of The Gentle Barn and our first animals, as Ellie's gift to you. To read a sample chapter and to pre-order her book, please go to: http://www.gentlebarn.org/my-gentle-barn.html
