La Mariposa is a story about a young Hispanic boy named Francisco that is attending school and doesn't understand any English He goes to school and comes home every day with a headache because he just sits there and listens to a teacher spill words out of her mouth that doesn't make any sense to him He starts to drift off in class even though his dad says that is disrespectful He stares at the class caterpillar and imagines him flying around his dad in the farm and hanging with him He's really interested in the caterpillar and is excited to learn about the cocoon and is amazed at the beauty when the cocoon starts to crack and sees the beautiful butterfly come out I think this is a great book to have in a classroom library for those students that can't speak English fluently to have something to relate to and understand Even if someone has to translate this book for the student it will let them see that they aren't the only one that feels the way they do I like that in the book Curtis starts a fight with Francisco over the jacket but by the end of the book Francisco gives Curtis his beautiful drawing of the butterfly that got him a number 1 blue ribbon award from the teacher I like that this book is written by the author himself so you get a sense of being in the authors mind while reading this book and the experiences are first hand I like the illustrations in the book and i feel they connect to the text very well I really enjoyed reading this book and i was excited to read on and i feel like my students would feel the same about this book This book showed that you should not give up even when the going gets tough and you should push through the hard times because everything will pass and you need to look forward to the future I think this is a good story to give students faith and keep them looking forward to the future I enjoyed reading the facts and real information at the end of the book it let me connect with the real character and visualize him Great read

It To find out he studies the words in a butterfly book so many times that he can close his eyes and see the black letters but he still can't understand their meaning Illustrated with paintings as deep and rich as the wings of a but. I enjoyed reading this book It has great illustrations The illustrations are rich The book is about a boy named Francisco who enters the 1st grade but does not speak or understand English While he is at school the only thing he does understand are the names During class he often imagined flying away over the fields to work with his dad because of the language barrier He looks at a caterpillar that's kept in a jar in the classroom Art becomes his favorite subject and the caterpillar becomes his inspiration to draw a butterfly that the teacher enters into a contest and it wins first prize I think this story is great for children ages 3 12 I would use this book in my classroom to share with my students how some of their peers who do not speak English may feel I work in a school where this is common in primary grades It can teach the students compassion and understanding of why the student may do work slightly different from them
