‘How to Make a Butterfly Fly’ By Amanda Ramirez

HOW TO MAKE A BUTTERFLY FLY is a twist on the butterfly life cycle taught in elementary school science class. Children grow up learning how a butterfly egg becomes a larva, then a caterpillar, then a pupa into a chrysalis, transforming into a butterfly that then flies away from the garden. However, what happens when something goes wrong? When Ms. Lady Monarch Butterfly takes off to leave the garden, after coming out of her chrysalis, she is interrupted by a storm leaving her on the garden floor. To her dismay, she finds out she has a torn wing and is unable to fly. It seems like it is over until Mr. Opossum approaches her after hearing her loud screams while she had been falling. He shows compassion for the distressed butterfly and takes her to his friend, The Gardener, who mends her broken wing and helps her soar with the wind! My story is an allegory about life circumstances not going as planned and how they are overcome with compassion, friendship, and grace. Children ages four through seven who enjoyed Jumanji, Adventures of Frog and Toad, or Stella Luna will want to read HOW TO MAKE A BUTTERFLY FLY.
