About the Book

This book contains true stories of magical Monarch moments which blend science and spirituality. After winning a journal as a door prize on the anniversary of her father’s passing, the life lessons Barb has learned from her Monarch connection flowed onto the pages. It was as if a butterfly was sitting on her shoulder whispering the words of wisdom that needed to be shared with the world.

About the Author

After raising Monarch butterflies in her primary classroom for thirty years, Barbara developed a special connection with them. Over the years, they have presented her with many life lessons in very interesting ways. When she retired from teaching, the Monarch population had reached an all time low and she now spends her time giving presentations, promoting the planting of milkweed (the only food source for their caterpillars) and nectar plants and loves to visit the Mexican Monarch sanctuaries each February. Barbara received The Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers from the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada in 2017. She was also the first recipient of the Ted Blowes Community Service Award.
