‘The Dragonfly Secret’ Lets Nature Tell Story of Friendship, Love, and Remembrance for Children
MAPLE PLAIN, Minn., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- "The Dragonfly Secret: A Story of Boundless Love" gently encourages children and adults to consider life's infinite possibilities. The story takes place in a beautiful garden and depicts a unique friendship between a boy and dragonfly. At the request of the boy, the dragonfly follows clues and discovers an unexpected secret. Part mystery, part surprise, readers will discover the power of boundless love in this heartfelt story of friendship, family, and remembrance. Children and adults may look at nature in an entirely new light.
"There are many perspectives from which people try to interpret what happens in their lives," said author John Adams. "In this story, we hope to show readers how nature may comfort someone who is coping with a loss." His co-author, Clea Adams, continued, "Our goal was to write a meaningful story for children and adults showing that memories of a loved one are forever. By using nature as the centerpiece, John and I have also tried to portray a more expansive, interrelated view of our world and nature's role within it."
