Please meet our Molly

How gorgeous is this photo?  I think it's stunning!!

Our very lovely friend Kim breeds Monarch Butterflies in Canada and recently sent us this beautiful photo after she spent some time talking to E and teaching him a little bit about Monarchs.

A few of the things Kim spoke to E about were;

  • Monarchs only eat one type of plant called Milkweed 
  • They migrate 3000 miles from Canada to Mexico and back every year
  • Their habit in Mexico is diminishing each year

Inspired by these beautiful creatures and Kim's amazing stories, we have a lovely Monarch Butterfly in our book named Molly in honour of Kim.

Thanks for the inspiration Kim!  xx
