Many Berthoud residents
featured in new
children’s book
By Heidi Kerr-Schlaefer
Berthoud Weekly Surveyor

Marilyn Magee knows a thing or two
about children; she is mother to five and
grandmother to four. Magee, who was
born and raised in Denver, lives just
outside Berthoud on County Road 12.
“I’ve always loved things that have to
do with kids,” said Magee as we sat
down at the Jumping Bean to talk about
her new book, “Becky and the Bunnies.”
“I’d always had a fascination with
writing,” said Magee.
“I’ve kept journals my
whole life and wrote poetry
when I was a kid.”
A small incident three years ago set
Marilyn Magee on the path to becoming
a children’s author. Magee needed some
fertilizer for her garden, and so she
drove over to Dale Sims’ place in
Berthoud to get a truckload of manure.
Back at home, she quickly discovered
that manure was not the only thing
she’d gotten at the Sims’ farm; she
found three baby bunnies buried in the
pile of manure.
At the time, Magee was working full
time, and she didn’t have the time to
care for three baby bunnies, so she
elicited the help of Tim
Vancil, of Berthoud. Mr.
Vancil already had his
hands full taking care of a
baby bird that had fallen
out of a nest in his yard, so
he called Becky Saul, also
of Berthoud. Becky was
able to take in the three
bunnies and nurse them
back to health.
“I photographed some of
what was going on, not
with the intention of writing
a book, but they were
so darn cute. Once I saw
the picture that’s now on
the cover of the book, I
thought this has to be a kids’ book — I
have to share this story with children,”
said Magee.
Magee had some previous
experience as an
author using the selfpublishing
capabilities at, so she went to work
compiling her photographs and writing
the story of Rascal, Jasper and Sweet
Pea, the lucky baby bunnies that Magee
rescued and Becky Saul raised.
“I would have to say this book is basically
meant for a parent to read to a
child. However, several young people
(ages seven to 10) read it, and they’ve
just loved it,” explained Magee. The
book, “Becky and the Bunnies,” is now
available for purchase in the bookstore
Magee has five other
books in various stages of
completion, including four
children’s books and one
book for teens. She is also
a writer for Denver’s, an
online newspaper providing
news on Denver and
the surrounding areas.
Magee is the Denver Frugal
Living Examiner and
her columns appear in the
Home & Living section of
the online magazine. She
provides tips on everything
from how to throw
an inexpensive weekend barbeque to
tips on throwing an eco-friendly wedding.
Creating books using
is an activity Magee truly enjoys, and
she has created two books for her relatives,
using family pictures to create a
long lasting, cherished family heirloom.
She would like to start building these
books for other people in the community
who would like to have their family’s
history preserved in such a way. Magee
also helps people write their life stories.
