Theresa Hildreth has used her love of butterflies that she shares with her granddaughter to take flight as an author, creating her first book, Teeda Says, “Be Patient”. Theresa’s inspiration is sparked by a child’s curiosity for knowledge—one she hopes is a magical and never-ending journey. Cherished afternoons on the front porch watching butterflies with granddaughter Audrey and answering her many questions inspired Theresa to share other learning moments. She brings her experience as a mother of two sons and a grandmother of five with love and wisdom as she continues to write the next books in the Teeda Says series, including: Be Responsible, Be Humble, Be Kind, Be Honest, Be Generous, Be Loving, and Be Helpful.
