A Butterfly Called Hope - Children's Book Review

I received book for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

Book Synopsis:

The colorful flowers in Mama’s garden reveal a strange-looking creature. “What is it? Does it sting, does it bite?” Join in this photographic journey as the young girl and her mother care for the caterpillar. Watch as it transforms into a chrysalis and then emerges as a beautiful monarch butterfly. How can the young girl “claim” the butterfly as her own but still let it go free?
My Review:

With realistic photographs, A Butterfly Called Hope tells of the life cycle of a butterfly. Children can see up-close illustrations of the cycle when a young girl named Hope captures a caterpillar in a jar and keeps it to see how the bug turns into a butterfly. It is an interesting story that will engage children and help them learn the progression. The 'For Creative Minds' section at the end of the book further helps children learn monarch life cycle sequencing, monarch generations and migrations, and how to raise monarchs. There's also a butterfly vocabulary matching activity.

A Butterfly Called Hope is a Fall 2013 book release by Sylvan Dell Publishing.

Such a cute book. I like to do theme gifts. Maybe giving my niece the book with a butterfly necklace or stickers.
