Reviews - What do customers think about The Butterfly Workshop?
Never give up on your dreams Jul 9, 2007
What a wonderful message to send to our young readers. I read this book aloud for three nights running to my 5 and 9 year old children. They were both captivated and completely "got it." The illustrations are quirky and beautiful, and the message is one that children can never hear too often---don't let others define you or your dreams...have confidence and conviction...and you will succeed.
A lovely new myth Jun 2, 2007
I am a big fan of Wolf Erlbruch and this book shows off his artistic talent nicely. The story is bound to please young children who may wonder where things in Nature come from. It's a treat for young artists and inventors too, who will see how the young, impassioned protagonist perseveres against the odds. The pictures lend a kind of multicultural flavor to the story as well.
