Amazing Matilda: A Monarch’s Tale

5.0 out of 5 starsProud to add this to my children’s library!

Amazing Matilda

As an early educator for nearly fifteen years, I am always seeking new books to share with my children. I stumbled upon this book and because I adore butterflies, I just had to give it a try. What I discovered is that this is not just another children’s book with pretty pictures and an engaging story line. It has a subtle, yet powerful underlining theme of perseverance, patience, and believing in oneself. The language isn’t too sophisticated for the targeted age group, yet it’s written in a way which would also cause parents to not be annoyed in having to read it ‘just one more time’ at the pleas of their little ones.

I own the Kindle and paperback version of this book now and I display it proudly in my classroom with my other favorites such as ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and Dr. Seuss classics. With all the ridiculous contemporary children’s books being released, which have no positive message or valuable information in them, it’s refreshing to find a gem like this one to add to my library.

    Dear Traci,

    Thanks so much for your gracious and thoughtful review of AMAZING MATILDA. I’m delighted to find that you enjoyed it and are sharing Matilda’s adventure with the kids in your life.

    I also have this book and recommended to my sons teacher to be read in the spring followed by a field trip to my house to see butterflies, chrysalis and cacoons and maybe even a birth. I did this with all my girls classes 15yr.s ago so why not my soon to be son?! Another great children’s book is I am Paper by Uvi Poznansky. This is wonderful that you do children’s books. I’m so glad I kept all my old ones as there are few with moral codes these days. Thank again!

      I actually write children’s books as well, Dianna, so I am quite particular about the children’s books I endorse. This one is wonderful.
