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.”

Dan Gunderson gets bird houses ready to paint for children
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.

I got a kick out of seeing a father coloring for his baby, so sweet.
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.
