Good Day Folks,
Whispering Wings by Jayne Peters
This book would be wonderful to read to kids and older kids will enjoy this magical story of five magical special butterflies. The illustrations by Mike Ferrin, add to the story and will be enjoyed.
I truly enjoyed this book. A young boy named Nick, who is dealing with getting his strength back after accident has positive messages he wants to share and help others. He discovers five caterpillars on his window sill all special and different markings help him help others. They all crawl into his shirt pocket. The caterpillars change into Butterflies and fly out of Nick’s pocket and whisper a message to those having a difficult time. The orange is first and whispers patience to his sister. The next one had wings that looked like stained glass and whispered to his mother helpfulness. The next butterfly whispered cooperation to his father so Nick helped with fixing his sister’s bike. Then a dark reddish-brown coat with black and white trim butterfly flew over to his other sister and whispered friendliness. His little sister comes running out and says “You can’t catch me.” Nick run lopsided with his artificial leg and begins to tear up. The last butterfly fluttered out of his pocket and whispersdetermination. He ran harder and faster and caught up to his sister. Everyone watches in amazement. That evening when he looks at his window all five beautiful butterflies are there waiting for him to open the window. Tender magical familyadventure with five important words to remember is a wonderful read.
