"Hector, The Loneliest Saguaro" is a charming and educational little tale that will resonate with children of all ages. In Kathryn Humphrey's first published work, through Hector's personal journey you will learn not only life's lessons, but also about the rich desert ecosystem of the southwest. We meet birds, butterflies and other critters, and observe the seasons and all the accompanying changes brought about by different kinds of weather. Beautifully illustrated by the author, the gorgeous desert colors and sweet characters add immensely to the story. Hector teaches us about loneliness and diversity and acceptance and, ultimately, the joy of having a special someone to love. Written from first word to last in one hour, after being inspired on the anniversary of her mother's passing, Kate feels that this book is heaven-sent, and so might you.More/less
