HAPPY EARTH DAY!

Please share this post…

Monarch butterflies are a threatened species. The Center for Biological Diversity and the Center for Food Safety filed a legal petition requesting Endangered Species Act protection for the monarch and its habitat.

AMAZING MATILDA written and illustrated by Maine author Bette A. Stevens:

“Award-winning picture book adventure follows a monarch butterfly through her life cycle and teaches kids important life lessons along the way!”

About the book

AMAZING MATILDA (Ages 5-11 + grownups love it too) Friendship, patience and persistence are among the lessons learned in this gem of a tale featuring an amazing monarch butterfly. This award-winning picture book adventure follows the monarch’s life cycle as Matilda embarks on a quest to make her dream of flying come true. Matilda emerges from her egg on a milkweed leaf, she stretches and yawns and wants to fly. Sparrow tells her to follow her dreams. Toad and Rabbit laugh at a creature without wings who wants to fly. You’ll be as amazed as Toad and Rabbit, as you follow Matilda from egg to imago.

April 19, 2019 Review Excerpt Blurb:

“Matilda crunched and munched and lunched, leaf after leaf, day after day.”

If you loved P.D. Eastman’s incomparable book, Are You My Mother, about a baby bird’s search for its mother, you must read this book. If Charlotte’s Web is one of your childhood favorites, I say, Move over Charlotte. Matilda is now here! ~Jacqui Murray, WordDreams

  7. Wonderful book and concept Bette. All the time the wings are growing and the Monarch is
    a bit despairing … but, fly she will.
    I love butterflies too and even see Monarchs in the garden during summer.

    • Hi, Jacqui. Thanks so much for stopping by to celebrate Earth Day with us. It looks like our amazing monarch butterflies have reached the DC area on their journey north. Most of our snow has disappeared and early blooms are smiling here in central Maine. Most of our snow has disappeared and our windowsill seedlings are eagerly waiting to get out in the fresh air in a few weeks. Oh, the glories of spring… Happy Earth Day every day! ♥ xo

    • Thanks for trying and letting me know, Marilyn… I’ve been having lots of issues with WordPress and this is one of them now that I’m on the Business Plan. I signed up so that I could have the Classic Editor andsince then everything has gone crazy. Lots of my photos are missing from past posts and who nows how many other crazy things are going on. I may have to cancel it… I noticed that I’m not able to reblog from other blogs either. ♥ In any event, have a Happy Earth Day and enjoy our short, but very sweet New England Spring! xoxo
