A unique story about a relationship and sweet friendship developed between a female praying mantis and a male carpenter ant. Phoebe and Tommy explore and accept each other's differences in the insect world for a summer season.
Understanding, acceptance and support are described in the story through friendly, innocent dialogue and exploration between the insects.
This story will enhance a child's awareness of a praying mantis, as many children have never seen one. Sadly, the population has been reduced by environmental factors. It is presented with a non-scientific approach, but accurate enough to educate children about the existence of praying mantis.
