About the Author

Nancy Lorraine brings her knowledge of children's developmental issues to her stories. She has a Ph.D. in Social Work and has counseled families and children in crisis for over 32 years. After retiring, Nancy Lorraine rediscovered the transformative power of nature and renewed her dedication to its conservation. Using her knowledge as a master gardener, Nancy Lorraine worked to certify her coastal town as a wildlife habitat by the National Wildlife Federation and helped to establish a Habitat nature park for her community. Nancy currently spends her spare time writing and tending to her backyard garden, a tranquil refuge frequented by butterflies and grandchildren. Dorothy Herron painted the beautiful watercolor illustrations for The Butterfly Adventure. She incorporates her love of nature in all her art. The watercolors in the book are available as art prints.

More About the Author

Nancy Lorraine (Edelman) has a Ph.D. in Social Work. She worked for over 30 years counseling families and children in crisis. Her mental health knowledge informs her stories. Lorraine, a master gardener, has an extensive backyard flower garden frequented by butterflies, dragonflies, and eight grandchildren. Her garden serves as a place of meditation and inspiration. The butterfly stories are works of joy.

"The Butterfly Adventure" is Nancy Lorraine's first published book. However, she just won an award in the Porter Fleming Literary Competition for a non-fiction essay. She and Dot Herron, the illustrator, have just published their second work about a small tattered Monarch butterfly who finds a way to migrate with help from friends. The book is called "Tatty, The Lonely Monarch." End notes provide information about butterflies, migration, and the flowers they depend on.

I hope that The Butterfly Adventure, a lovely, unpretentious children's book, gains a wide audience. The story is charming and original, and the beautiful illustrations are captivating; I love that they are so natural, soft, and subtle. It's the kind of book I would have read over and over as a child.

The book is a wonderful, exciting adventure that will definitely keep a child's attention even when you read it over and over again! The balance of pictures and description was just right, and the watercolor illustrations are quite beautiful. I could definitely see a teacher or parent using the book to teach about different types of butterflies, insects, animals, and even flowers! Plus, there's the themes of friendship and helping each other find the way home. It would even be fun to make little art projects inspired by the story! The book is also broken into short chapters that provide a nice stopping point in the tale, which is perfect for keeping a child longing for more until the next night...

The Butterfly Adventure is a beautiful way to introduce young children to the wonders of nature, most specifically, in the backyard garden. The lovely bond between the grandparent and child serves as an example of what love within a family should be. Giving the creatures in the garden human emotions and personalities is another feature of this book which may help children (and adults) view all nature in a more imaginative way. We look forward to more butterfly adventures.

My husband ordered this book for me, and I love it. Being a retired elementary teacher, I can see so many uses for it in the classroom. The book presents excellent information for children to learn more about butterflies,and other insects. The illustrations are so captivating that I know the children would want to create their own. The book is a wonderful tool for science and research lessons and I wish I were back in the classroom to share it with students. The Butterfly Adventure by Nancy Lorraine is a true gift for the elementary classroom.
