1st Butterfly House in CT

Webster Hill has become known in West Hartford as the “butterfly school” for the past quarter century, so important to the school’s mission that the monarch butterfly has been incorporated into the logo and even became part of the building’s architecture when an addition was built in the late 1990s.

“My books are a reflection of my Love for Nature! I personally raised all the characters in my stories, and for the past 25 years, have filmed and collected many photos. My educational goal has always been to engage and inspire children and encourage awareness for protecting the Monarch’s Milkweed Habitat. In the midst of all my monarchs, I discovered Woolly Bear eggs on parsley at a garden center and…Voila!…a brand new story was created!! ENJOY!!”

CT Life

“What FUN it was ~ LIVE broadcasting on the television set of CT STYLE – Hosts Ryan Kristafer and Teresa Dufour welcomed me with “Open Wings!” Spontaneity and concise dialogue are necessities … unfortunately, time ran out and I wanted to highlight the “behind the scenes” story of MONARCH BUDDIES to the importance of the Anniversary Edition. It was an original story to be published back in 1996, but was then converted to the scientific text of MONARCH MAGIC, published in 1998! I revived the story in 2016 and MONARCH BUDDIES is available as the companion book to MONARCH MAGIC! … The DYNAMIC DUO for teaching!!” FYI ~ the caterpillar in the cage on set had grown up! ~ IT’S A GIRL ~ named after TERESA!
