Behind the Book: Kathy has been working on this book concept for many, many years. The mock up is constructed and illustrated by her, but presently the book is being professionally illustrated and she hopes to have it published in the near future.
Vision: Kathy feels strongly that this book is a way to get children outside and discover the magic and the beauty of the natural world. She hopes that children will one day play outside again instead of staying indoors with technology.
