“WOW! WOW! WOW! The book is a photo essay, picture book, non-fiction all rolled into one. The story of the Mama Monarch’s mission has a nice cadence and is a
perfect read to the youngest readers. 
The factual information presented is just the right amount for young readers.  The information presented is great for a school report as well." Maria Showich-Gallup, Head of Children’s Services, Farmington Public Library

“The book itself feels great! The pictures are beautiful. The additional drawings add a nice contrast to the color photos. I appreciate the field notes. They can be read or ignored, based on the reader's age or interest. This little book has so much information crammed into it!” Melanie Allbery, Early Childhood Specialist, Farmington Community Library
