Coming in Fall of 2017

I Am a Butterfly is a delightful story of hope and becoming. A monarch butterfly faces metamorphosis, overcomes her fear of her dark chrysalis, and takes flight with beautiful new wings.

Readers young and old will delight in this entertaining and educational story of nature’s (and our own) magical mystery— metamorphosis.

Praise for I Am a Butterfly

This lovely children’s book captures the science and splendor of the monarch’s miraculous adventure from egg to butterfly. The author’s own dazzling photographs guide the reader on the fascinating journey of metamorphosis and serve as a metaphor for the beauty to be found on the other side of surprising life changes.

More Praise for I Am a Butterfly

I Am a Butterfly is an exquisite, metaphorical story describing the organic transformation of one butterfly as it moves through its life cycle. The various life cycle stages, so beautifully photographed, parallel the process and patience needed to mindfully cultivate awareness of our own human experience of change.
