One concern parents have is how to inspire their children to meet challenges with patience and persistence. This is the plot of the award-winning picture book, AMAZING MATILDA, A Monarchs Tale, written and illustrated by Bette A. Stevens. In this story a caterpillar wants to learn how to fly. She asks all of her friends in the meadow, but doesnโ€™t find an easy answer. Yet, she continues the quest until, at last, she becomes what she wants to beโ€”a butterfly. AMAZING MATILDA offers adults the opportunity to inspire the children in their lives to meet their own challenges with patience and persistence.

  1. Good Morning Bette,
    I will never forget when I first read Amazing Matilda. That was some time ago but I still remember the impact that it had on my life as an adult. It is truly a book for all.
    Sending you hugs out of good old Europe.
    Have a lovely Merry Christmas and a blessed crossover into 2022.

  2. It’s a wonderful gift for children, Bette. Reminds me of one I had as a child of a butterfly with a torn wing searching for a cure so she could fly again. I remember my mom reading it for me, and later, reading it for myself.
    Merry Christmas for you and yours.

    • 2021 was not a good Monarch Year here in Maine… I only sighted a few dozen. Spring was very dry and milkweed faded quickly. We have had similar years/conditions in past. Hopefully these beautiful butterflies will soar in numbers next year. ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹
