  1. i’m going to try this Bette! Thanks, LOL!


  2. I’ll be using this in my homeschool! Thanks for sharing this at Booknificent Thursday on Mommynificent.com this week!


  3. Great ideas for schools and nursing homes.


  4. This is outstanding. I love the Monarch best of all butterfies. I ‘d love to learn to draw/ color one.


  5. Fantastic! Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ


  6. Bette, I love your book and this like a gift to both children and adults. Thanks so much. It seems like a great project for adults with psychiatric problems, of course, those who are able to follow directions to learn about the Monarch, others will color them with any color. Still a great project to develop concentration, and fine motor coordination.


    • I already wrote to Val Webb’s website about the info; thanks so much for the idea!!!


    • Hi, Maria. Thrilled that you love the book and delighted that you enjoyed the post. I think you’re right on-target with the all-ages idea for the drawing project. In fact, I think I’ll use it with the schools I visit and contact local nursing homes as well. Thanks so much. You’re awesome, my friend! ❤


  7. We planted our butterfly milkweed yesterday. Finally. I hope it takes. Not so easy to find anyplace with actually dirt. Our yard is rocks and roots.


    • Rocks and roots…sounds like home. Oh, and weeds! The dandelions are gloriously golden in the field and gardens. Our milkweed is just popping up and I hope we have monarchs this year. I’m starting some nasturtiums this week to help lure the imagos. We’ll see. We desperately need some rain. Have had a few showers, but Dan says the ground was bone-dry a foot down when he transplanted a few blueberry bushes yesterday. Fruit trees are in bloom and tulips too. Yay, spring! ❤


  8. Anyone who draws butterflies is #1 in my book. And she makes it look so easy!
