Post “The Dragonfly and Me: An Enchanted Adventure in Ecology for Children” is an Engaging and Thought-Provoking Forest Tale for School-Age Readers

“The Dragonfly and Me: An Enchanted Adventure in Ecology for Children” from Page Publishing author Donald Green is an engrossing story introducing a charming band of creatures serving as caretakers of the forest. Grollen and his friends are eager to share their knowledge and highlight the importance of all the animals and plants that inhabit the natural world.

Machias, Maine
February 05, 2019

Donald Green, a husband, father, grandfather, and Vietnam veteran, currently serving as part-time pastor of a small church in rural Maine, has completed his book “The Dragonfly and Me: An Enchanted Adventure in Ecology for Children”: an accessible and informative story illustrating the deleterious effects of human activity on nature and encouraging awareness and action in young people.

Donald shares, “On any given lazy summer afternoon, a child might look up and wonder why dragonflies flit across the sky so quickly. What are they doing? Where are they going? Why are they in such a hurry? Add a little folklore, a little magic and wonder and a genuine concern for what is happening in our world, and you have an adventure.

Questions and wonder are answered through meetings with creatures who care for and inhabit the wild parts of the world. Each has a job to do, and each has a responsibility to others of their kind. Each character cares for their world and does what they can to monitor the wild and help mitigate the dangers and the changes which are happening to the world we all inhabit.

Through meeting these evocative characters, and the adventures shared with each, we learn that we too are affected by the ecological changes occurring in our world. Inspiring our youth through personal experiences, particularly through the use of storytelling, stimulates their imagination. When given motivation and direction, they too can become agents for change. By educating themselves the child learns how to effect change for the good through their own efforts and enlisting the help of others.

Everyone learns through their experiences, which include reading and engaging with others to make positive changes. This story reflects our shared need to see things that should be modified for the benefit of all, and to find a way to make those changes not only possible but attainable as well. Grollen, Gretchen, Mukuee, Sylvia, and Baron, all await meeting you in person and helping you see things a little differently.”
