Hi Everyone!

Mary Alice Monroe's latest children's book A BUTTERFLY CALLED HOPE is now available! There's also a Goodreads giveaway going on that you can enter starting August 27-September 10!

Enter the giveaway here:

The colorful flowers in Mama’s garden reveal a strange-looking creature. “What is it? Does it sting, does it bite?” Join in this photographic journey as the young girl and her mother care for the caterpillar. Watch as it transforms into a chrysalis and then emerges as a beautiful monarch butterfly. How can the young girl “claim” the butterfly as her own but still let it go free?

Mary Alice  Monroe (mam25) | 8 comments It's November and the reports from Mexico are dire. This will be the smallest number of monarchs ever recorded--and this has been trending like this for the past 8 years. I wrote ABCH to encourage families to raise monarchs. I have over a dozen eggs and a dozen caterpillars now, though I didn't have any all summer. Very strange. I'll raise these and those that emerge in the next week will be released. Helping your child observe the beautiful metamorphosis is a gift!

Keep planting milkweed in your gardens and do not spray!
