Butterflies for Kiri

By Dallas Morning News

Butterflies for Kiri gives young readers the feeling of having a book in a book with Kiri’s own story of her birthday treasure. More practically, readers can try out origami using some of the instructions included in the story. Author/illustrator Cathryn Falwell cleverly spreads the joy through Kiri’s own words as she calls out the instructions from her book, “‘Fold crisply. Crease sharply.’ the book said.” Kids, try the step-by-step picture instructions at the end of the book to make your own origami butterfly. It looks easy enough even for grown-ups.
