Pacha is a little girl awakening to her immense gifts and bringing them to the world. Pacha’s imagination is bigger than the Andes Mountains – homeland of her ancestors. When she goes to sleep, the characters on her pajamas guide her on dream adventures to learn more about herself and the world. The day before Earth Day, Pacha’s magical pajamas carry her into an epic dream where she’s the central player at a nature festival to save the planet from destruction. Pacha awakens with the inspiration to show the world that We Are ALL Connected.
Pacha’s Pajamas: A Story Written By Nature is the Environmental Awakening story of a Latina girl named Pacha and the first book in the Pacha’s Pajamas series.
