'The Chants of the Praying Mantises through the Barks,' is a story for children about children. Orwell and Ruben are praying mantises who become the students of the great Professor, Oscar, at the acclaimed Tulip School. The two brothers learn all about themselves, the wonders of nature, and most of all about humans. They learn their vital skills in order to survive and take account of how Olive, a human, outlasts despite all the barks imparted to her, and why she could overcome all the obstacles set before her.

In her newly published children's story, 'The Chants of the Praying Mantises through the Barks,' May Green tells the story about two young sibling praying mantises, Orwell and Ruben, who attend the acclaimed Tulip School. At the school, they study under Oscar, who is also a praying mantis, but he is also a Professor. They learn about their function and their position and the positions of other related species in the natural world, how their traits are the product of evolution and how their character in the world has influenced human evolution and progress.

The story centers on constructive and evolutionary development; whereby, the following concept surfaces: we all have the ability to guide and lead ourselves in spite of any and whatever impositions we encounter. This serves as the fundamental theme of the story. Humans have the ability to be constructive and reconstruct, if necessary, in order to survive, while remaining in touch with their own instincts. Another key message of the book is that survival skills are of the utmost importance, in which civil and constructive means are, always at hand, if chosen to implement. It is a learning story presented as a children's story which has allowed for a presentation of a unique look at humanity that is easy to understand. The story is written for children of about the ages of nine to twelve.

"'The Chants of the Praying Mantises through the Barks,' is highly recommended as a very thought provoking story with colorful characters. It is a book that imparts an interesting insight into our own natural instincts and how these instincts are not just to ensure survival of each species, but also allows us to grow intellectually and make better life choices without feeling the pressure of external influences who want to define our place and purpose in the world. It is a story that children will enjoy reading."
