"Mandy's Prairie Home" Coloring Book
All ages can enjoy coloring the beautiful black-and-white illustrations in this story of a Midwestern prairie threatened — then saved — written and illustrated by Gillian Moore.
Mandy, a Massasauga rattlesnake, lived happily in sunny, open prairie. But strange, invading plants began taking over her home. Her friend, the Wise Old Oak, saw its acorns struggle to survive in the cool shade. Could anything save them? Using fire — nature’s own tool — caring people bring Mandy’s home back into balance.
