Notable Book...

My first picture book
Silkii A Mermaid's Tale 
has been chosen as a notable children's book in the 
Dec/Jan issue of  

Silkii a brave young mermaid explores the air above her lagoon and becomes friends with a butterfly.  Even though Silkii and the butterfly are from very different worlds, they find ways to spend a lovely summer playing on the lagoon between the air and the water. In the end they say good bye when the butterfly must migrate south and the mermaid must hibernate for the winter.

Silkii is an engaging story about friendship and the cycles of life. Throughout the story the butterfly's life cycle is illustrated on the facing  pages.


                                 Silkii is perfect for teaching lifecycles. 

             It is a great followup to Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpiller.
