5.0 out of 5 stars ~~Patience is a virtue~~ March 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are some really interesting facts in this one about the praying mantis. I didn't realize that they waited for the bugs and insects to come to them. Also, that they can see 50 feet with their wonderful eyesight.

I like the fact that it discusses the 3 stages from egg to adult. And, also that they are a symbol of patience and stillness.

Most highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing Book about the Praying Mantis September 13, 2013
By 2acres
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Praying Mantis is one of those bugs that everyone has an admiration of, even if they are a bit afraid. This book offers incredible details about this bug, helping kids become much more knowledgeable about it, where it comes from, its life cycle and what it looks like in detail. It is a great way to get kids to be a little less afraid of this bug and more in tune with what it can offer the world.

More About the Author

Hi everyone! I would like to take a few minutes of your time so you can get to know me a little. I grew up in the greater Detroit area with my mom and 2 brothers.

No matter how tired my mom was when she came home from work, she would read me a bedtime story. That is when my passion for books began. I have always wanted to write my own books but never had the time until now.

Several of my life experiences have filled my brain with a variety of ideas for books. I spent 10 years of my life in the convent and learned about spirituality, humility and the joy of giving. After I left the convent I met and married my wonderful husband who supports me in all my efforts. Together we have raised 2 terrific children.

My 40+ years working in the nursing field has also given me a wealth of knowledge on pain, suffering, joy, and happiness. Working the psych unit for over 10 years gave me insight into human behavior. My best asset for taking on this goal to write books is my sense of humor, which at times has caused me some trouble.

For those of you that already know me, you can attest to my sense of humor and how far my imagination can take me. I want to write books that appeal to you and your children, and your grandchildren so feel free to send any suggestions. Enjoy!
