Butterflies for Kiri

By Booklist

Colorful and bright, this story of frustration and determination will appeal to children who have experienced both… The cut-and-torn paper collages are just the right medium for this story, and Falwell uses her papers to good effect — sometimes very simply, sometimes in elaborate ways — to capture both the enthusiasm of the child and the enthusiasm apparent in Kiri’s art. A final page offers instructions for making an origami butterfly; as with Kiri, it may take children awhile to master the project, but they should enjoy practicing.
