A writer inspired by nature and human nature

Award-winning picture book gets another ★★★★★

Year 'Round Thanksgiving Project

I love children’s books and read quite a lot of them to children (4-6 yrs). This story of Matilda shows how a caterpillar develops and changes into a beautiful Monarch butterfly. It is done in a way that is just perfect for young children to understand. I think this book could serve as a great introduction to more learning about butterfly development and habitat. And what a perfect thing for children to learn so they can become advocates for the environment.

Five out of five stars

Comments on: "Amazing Matilda by Bette Stevens Review" (5)

  1. Pam did a great job with her review. Hope you’re keeping warm.


  2. Did my research on a very large moth and got to watch this magic on a daily basis. This should be really interesting to young readers (or being read tos).


    • We raised monarch butterflies in our fourth grade classroom one year, when one of my Mom’s was kind enough to deliver them as a gift. It was amazing! You know all about it, Noelle. Here at home, I visit local classrooms who raise Viceroys (Monarch look-alikes) each year. I go in to read Amazing Matilda and the kids get a chance to teach/tell me all they’ve learned about butterflies. Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit! 🙂
