Botany in a Day.

Good afternoon,

     I must say that I am a little starstruck -- I wasn't expecting to hear directly from the creator of these fabulous games and author of Botany in a Day! Botany in a Day opened my eyes to an entirely new and highly effective way of teaching organism identification and revealing deeper truths about plants. Thank you so much for creating and publishing this (and many other!) tremendous resources.

Wildlife Web Game Box.      I have copies I bought and purchased of both of the Shanleya books and games, as well as Botany in a Day and the Wildlife Web game with my own money for my personal use but I feel okay about sharing the hard-cover copies of the Shanleya books at work-they are so nice and durable with their hard covers. Thanks again for the work you have done; I look forward to sharing the games and book with students.
