Hey Everyone! I hope you are all having a great start into March. Today I bring you a really cute book. The Little Butterfly and The Shy Girl, by Lora Mela, is about the adventures a little girl takes with a butterfly, who helps boost her confidence and gets her out of her comfort zone a little. The little girl is very shy, and has the little problem of blushing all the time. No matter what she does, her blushing won’t go away and she lacks confidence. Until one day she comes across a little colorful butterfly. The butterfly has come to help her so that she doesn’t feel the need to blush anymore and helps her build her up postively. The little butterfly takes her on adventures that help her, and turn her from a little shy girl, to a little confident girl.
I thought this book was really creative way to portray building up confidence, especially in children. The story is great for young children that are looking for that boost. It shows them that they really can feel comfortable being who they are and they are meant to shine. I read the book on the Kindle, and it was really easy to view and access. The illustrations, done by Carly Demond, were very colorful and bright and could catch any child’s eye. The only improvements I could see that could help this book would be to have more of the illustrations on the pages. The pictures were colorful, but I think it would really make the book stand out a little more if they were a bit bigger. Other than that, I thought it was a very cute and creative book. Perfect for any child that needs that little confidence boost. So if you are looking for that next book that’s a perfect going to bed book, or just an after school read, I’d check this one out, especially if you have a Kindle. The book is only $0.99!
