Review

"A creative...filled completely with pictures and no words, its purpose to challenge the readers to say thestory they see unfolding before them. The pictures are unique and donevery well, keeping our imaginations open as we flip through each page. I really love the availability Butterfly Blink provides for the kids tomake up their own stories and be creative....I was pleased withButterfly Blink and will be keeping my eye out for future books by thisauthor." - Rayleigh Ann Gray, Literature Approved
 
"Books without words are an excellent way to get readers engaged in a story.They will have fun with sharing their interpretations of the pictures.This beautifully illustrated story shows monarch butterflies andchildren enjoying them as they flutter and bounce on a lovely sunnyday....The back of the book...shares interesting facts regarding monarch butterflies losing their primary food source and what children can doto help. If we don't do something now, we could blink and they would begone....a great project for any home or school. Parents and teacherswill enjoy introducing young readers to the monarch." - KristiBernardon, Kristisbooknook.blogspot.com
 
"I love that an early reader can create their own version of the storywith nothing more than the book and their imagination! Building thisearly love of books will create lovers of books for life! This book isbeautiful, colorful and has endless stories waiting to be discovered! Ilove using books without words in my classes because not all childrenhave the same attention span and I can change and adapt the story tomeet the needs and interest of the children...4stars." - Mrs MommyBooknerd (Mrs Mommy Booknerd's Book Reviews)
 
"The progression of the butterfly cycle was illustrated well...One of thegreatest parts was the addition of the information about butterflies and their cycle in the back. It was a great addition for parents to read to their children." - Hannah McNally, ScribbleScrabbler

4.0 out of 5 stars Super pretty, mindful book for children!
Reviewed in the United States on April 14, 2016
Butterfly Blink: A Book Without Words, is beautiful and very suitable for children ages 2-6.The only reason I am giving it 4 stars and not 5 is because, to me, it seems if you recommend a book for a child aged 2, it has to be very sturdy--almost made of cardboard, like The Very Hungry Caterpillar,
I remember being the ages of 2 through 6 (yes, even age 2 and younger), This book would have entranced me because I loved butterflies! As I grew older, I learned more and more about them on my own, even to the point where I learned their Latin names.
I think a book without words is a fascinating concept. It is one which I have no problem grasping, and not just because I am the mother of two sons with severe autism. It is absolutely a suitable book for a child with a disability, As well, as I have had three other sons who read and continue to read as adults, I "get" the delight they would have taken in the colorful illustrations in Butterfly Blink. No words needed!
I like the fact that there was a dog in the book, and some children, so that the reader can relate to the story from different angles. I loved the luscious colors and duly noted the commentary you will see when the book is ended. We need to take care of our creatures! All in all, a lovely book with stunning illustrations. Just be gentle with it, with your littlest one.
