We were delighted to join the
Birmingham Botanical Gardens, on a perfect summer day, to celebrate Butterfly Education and Awareness Day, and also to share the newest book in the eco mystery series for middle grades, The Adventures of The Sizzling Six: Monarch Mysteries (book 6 in the series).

Making Butterfly Feeders (Boris Datnow)

What a pleasure to see children, as happy and carefree as the butterflies, learning about what they can do to conserve butterflies and bees. The kids were especially awed by the butterfly release sponsored by the
Birmingham Zoo.
