A little girl's cape gets stuck on the school bus door and rips. When she spots her cat batting at a butterfly, she shoos the cat to save it, then set it free. Then, as she naps on the ground, one butterfly becomes many, and they scoop the girl up, taking her on an adventure.
Lovely, lovely, lovely. Being a wordless book allows us to create a story that captures your imagination or emotions. Although the butterfly is woven into every page, the author masterfully adds a subtle layer about autumn. The girl's orange cape rips getting off the school bus, and the falling leaves signal the season, as well. Are they the butterflies or is this a butterfly migration? You decide.
This would be fun to read (and listen to young readers tell their version) any time. Highly recommended as a bedtime story, as it will send young readers off to a beautiful dreamland.
Lovely, soothing illustrations carry readers into an imaginative world filled with Monarch butterflies.
None, unless you or your child struggle with trying to "interpret" the illustrations.
This wordless picture book celebrates butterflies and imagination.
Creative storytelling and imagination are the heart of this wordless picture book.
