My Life as a Dragonfly: Swimmer to Flyer!

 

              by William S. Cruscial. (water colors by Katherine Dorman)

 

"My Life As A Dragonfly: Swimmer to Flyer"; A children's book on the dragonfly life cycle. Using beautiful watercolor, this book follows the life of a dragonfly that lived high in the Sawtooth Mountain range in Central Idaho. Mr. Cruscial had the privilege of witnessing a dragonfly hatch at an alpine lake in the Sawtooth Mts. while he was fly fishing/back packing in the area. He wanted to share this marvel of nature with his children and other children to help them appreciate the wonder of life, thus the book began. The pages show the progression of the dragonfly's life cycle as the story unfolds with illustrations showing the various stages of the dragonfly from the egg to the nymph stage, to hatching out as an adult dragonfly. The fullpage color illustrations were originally done in watercolor and are outstanding. Katherine Dorman is the illustrator. The book is written for children preschool to 3rd grade. 32 pages long with an 11 by 8.5 format. Sawtooth Press. 1995.
