APRIL 19-23: Inspire the kids in your life with a FREE copy of AMAZING MATILDA!
PRLog - April 19, 2014 - BANGOR, Maine -- Monarch butterfly conservation is in the news. AMAZING MATILDA is too! The author’s storyline and illustrations follow the monarch life cycle and highlight milkweed, an environmentally threatened plant—the only food source for monarch caterpillars.

"…I immediately fell in love with Matilda, an amazing, sweet, curious character. What a lovely story with a subtle and yet deep and understandable message for young (and those who are not so young) readers. This book is one of "must have" books in your library. I already purchased a Kindle version for myself and I ordered two more copies in print for my library." —Vida Zuljevic

BOOK SUMMARY: Matilda doesn't want to leap onto ledges or bound across fields. She only wants to fly. “How can a creature without wings every hope to fly?" Matilda's friends wonder as they laugh at the tiny caterpillar who only wants to fly. Meanwhile, as Matilda munches and crunches on milkweed leaves and progresses from egg to butterfly, her friends begin to recall how they felt before they were able to do all of the things they had dreamed of doing. With a little help from her friends, Matilda learns that if she keeps trying, she can do anything that she really wants to do.
