The Monarch Butterfly Coloring Book
This review is from: The Monarch Butterfly Coloring Book (Volume 1) (Paperback)
Mary Ellen Ryall’s delightful coloring book contains easy to read educational information, a glossary at the back, simple illustrations all about the majestic Monarch Butterfly. It is important to note this is not just a colouring book because it has been written with a great deal of love and passion for the continued survival of this species. If you know of any child who has an interest in nature or butterflies then make sure you give this inexpensive but value gift to them to treasure. It surely will give a new appreciation of this unique insect such as the Monarch Butterfly as it goes through its amazing transformation from a pupa to a beautiful winged butterfly.

I knew they would be special but they command ‘perfection.’ Congratulations on yet another dream, which I realize entailed an enormous amount of time, labor and co-ordination. Your associates are also very talented. My congratulations to all.”
