My REVIEW :
My girls are ages 5 and 2 and they both loved this book. They especially loved the animals in the book, and their favorite was Maggie the butterfly. I loved the fact that this book helps build self-esteem and inner self worth for children. A lot of children these days do not get these messages. This book does a great job getting children to learn this. My girls were pretending to be Kathryn after reading this book. The illustrations in the book are bright and cheerful. And they couldn’t have chosen a better color for my 2 yr. old, cause her favorite color is purple. Kathryn had a magical imaginary butterfly and a magic wand that she used to get through situations like having a monster under her bed, talking to new people (like a little boy), making new friends, and going to a new school. I think that this would make a super addition to your child’s library. Be prepared because your kids will want to read it over and over again (like mine) and soon they will basically be able to read it to you. What a brilliant, fun, and magical book!
