Featherrock Books--The Dragonfly Door & The Dragonfly Secret
In 2007, a former Dragonfly Project board member, John Adams, was so inspired by the story that he sat down to write a children's story based on the dragonfly story. A year later he and his wife wrote another story together. Through the use of sweet characters and colorful drawings, these heartwarming storires are designed to help children and their adults understand the painful emotions of grief and loss. To connect to Featherrock books, see the purple box at the lower right.
Written by John & Clean Adams. Illustrated by Barbara Gibson. Published by Feather Rock Books.
