The story is about a young girl’s experience with a praying mantis. The book was written with Latchkey children in mind. As parents, educators, and guardians, we teach our children how to be independent, as well as safe in and on their way home.

The focus and purpose of the book is to help children understand, the importance of trust, safety, security, and friendship.

  • A praying mantis can be found on every continent except Antarctica. Of the 1,800 or so known species, most are between one to three inches in length. Some tropical ones may grow as large as eight inches or more.

  • A praying mantis has a triangular head and a long, flexible neck that can bend easily, allowing it to turn its head 180° from side to side, thus giving it a 300° field of vision. It can spot the slightest movement from 60 feet away.

  • It has two large, compound eyes and three other simple eyes located between them.

  •  In some parts of Africa, it is considered good luck if one of them lands on you.
