Cecily Cicada

by Kita Helmetag Murdock, Patsy Helmetag Murdock, Patricia Helmetag, Patsy Helmetag (Illustrator)
 

When I found out that the seventeen-year cicadas were coming to DC this spring, I immediately thought of my two-year-old daughter, Evie, and her fear of bugs. I wanted a fun and lighthearted way to tell her what would soon be happening. I told my mom, Patsy, that I wished there were a book for young children to explain the phenomenon.

Thus, Cecily Cicada

Overview

When I found out that the seventeen-year cicadas were coming to DC this spring, I immediately thought of my two-year-old daughter, Evie, and her fear of bugs. I wanted a fun and lighthearted way to tell her what would soon be happening. I told my mom, Patsy, that I wished there were a book for young children to explain the phenomenon.

Thus, Cecily Cicada was born while we were on road trip to visit my girls' cousins, Hannah and Addis. Evie and baby Lucy slept in the back while Mom and I collaborated in rhyme. My mom's illustrations brought humor and life to Cecily.

While Cecily's message of patience and hope is relevant to the seventeen-year cicada cycle, we realized it is a timeless message as well.

We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it. - Kita Helmetag Murdock
