An Extraordinary Ordinary Moth

Sleeping Bear Press, 2018
Told in rhyme, from the point of view of the moth, we’re introduced to the world of moths. While many fascinating moths are mentioned and illustrated, a boy becomes fascinated with an ‘ordinary’ brown moth. Enamored with the moth, the boy educates his younger sister on what makes the moth so special. Soon both children and their mother love the moth. The little ordinary moth takes pride that he’s someone’s favorite. Children who think of themselves as ordinary will certainly relate to this endearing tale.
