Thoughful review of The Monarch Butterfly Coloring Book

Book review for The Monarch Butterfly Coloring Book was sent from Jeannette Ruby, Florence, SC. The  book is available at http://www.amazon.com

“Thank you so much for sending the coloring books. They are extraordinarily educational and inspirational. 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.”

Jeannette is referring to Cindy Dyer, art layout and cover photography; and Mora McCusker, artist and illustrator. Cindy Dyer is a co-owner of Butterfly Woman Publishing. She is owner of Dyer Design, Alexandria, VA, at http://www.cindydyer.wordpress.com

This is not a sales pitch but rather a test market to see how kids respond to the book. Happy Tonics exhibited with Fresh Start, at Family Festival in Spooner, WI, on June 2. Dan Gunderson, Fresh Start, made copies of the coloring book pages and children stopped by to color.

Gideon Fegman, came by to talk and color. He was excited. Gideon told me, “I’m a naturologist.” I was impressed by his intelligence and told him, “You might grow up to be a scientist. He loves everything  ologist. Well, that means it could be anything from entomologist to biologist or beyond.

Hundreds of families, grandparents, and children came. I even saw a few of my friends, on their walkers, from Terraceview Living Center, a nursing home in Shell Lake. One reminded me to bring over a few butterfly plants for the outdoor garden. They want to have a butterfly garden. What a grand occasion it was for community and the butterflies.
