Ky The Butterfly Book Review
This book was awesome! I loved the limericks contained on each page, and my son was riveted the whole time! The pictures are colorful, and the story is easily engaging for small children.
I loved the plot and story line. Ky the caterpillar admires the butterflies he sees fluttering around him. He starts to wonder what he is, and a little butterfly exclaims that he too is a butterfly. Puzzled Ky tries all kinds of ways to become a butterfly, and tries to force the change. Ky tries all kinds of silly things to force the change, but nothing happens. Devastated that he isn’t turning into a butterfly he wraps himself in a cocoon and goes to sleep. Upon awakening he has beautiful silky wings and is so excited. He can’t believe he actually turned into a butterfly!
This is a great story about change, and I think it goes to show children that sometimes we just have to let things happen on their own. Everything happens in due time, and things do change.
This book fits toddler age - elementary aged children. The pictures are colorful, the limericks are engaging, and the story wonderful. Even though it is about butterflies this novel fits both boys and girls and would be a wonderful read for either. I think it would be a wonderful story to read during class story time as well. It’s easy to follow along with, my son and I were both reading along by the end of the book, and he begged me to read it again and again. So I definetely recommend it, and you can check it out at the following…
