Bye Bye Butterflies

Illustrated by Jacqueline Hudon-Verrelli
Fitzhenry & Whiteside, 2012
ISBN 978-1-55455-220-7 

One day on a walk with his dad Charlie sees some boys and girls on the rooftop of the school saying goodbye as they release butterflies up into the sky. Charlie is amazed by the butterflies. He wishes he could do something like that, too. When Charlie starts school next year he becomes a “butterfly scientist” and helps his teacher and classmates care for some teeny tiny caterpillars as they grow into butterflies and are, in turn, released by Charlie and his class.

I love this book because it was inspired by my son’s nursery school. I put both myself and my son, Charlie, in this book.
