Review for A Thousand White Butterflies

A Thousand White Butterflies by Jessica Betancourt-Perez, Karen Lynn Williams, Gina Maldonado, Girl, Pigtails, Mug, Sweater Orange, Snow, Road, Picture Books, Children's Books, New Girl, I received this book from Netgalley/publisher in exchange of an honest review.

This book just looked and sounded too adorable to pass up! A story about an immigrant girl who experiences her first snow and first snow day. I know about snow, but we don’t have snowdays so I always love reading about them in books. They sound amazing! I wish we could have days off because of weather.

Our girl is eager to start school, to make some friends (I love how she had everything ready for the day), but then instead of her first day of school she gets a first day of snow! One would be happy about that, but our girl just looked forward to school so much she isn’t that happy. But I knew things would change, because snow means tons of fun things! And I didn’t have to wait long. I loved that despite some language problems these girls were having a fantastic day. Friendship and having fun overrules any language problem!

I loved that the title was about the snow! Thousand white butterflies, I am going to remember that next time when snow falls.

I was actually happily surprised! I learned some Spanish at a course years ago, I tried keeping up with it when I moved away but you know how it goes, other things come in between, but apparently some stuff stayed in my head! I understood most of the Spanish that was said here and I was just so proud of myself. Now I may be motivated to try again, because Spanish is such a pretty language.

I normally don’t read authors’ notes, but I did in this one. Or well, I glanced over and read the first sentence and just had to continue. It was interesting learning more about the author and the illustrator. How they met, about immigrants, and more.

The art is also very cute and adorable!

All in all, I had tons of fun reading this one. We may not have any snow yet, but this book brought snow to me.

Star rating, 4.5 stars
