Kieran (6 yo) and barbarians, bears, and goslings, oh my!

Meet Kieran, a fantastically endearing Book Butterfly. His two favorite books are ‘Great, Now We’ve Got Barbarians!’ by Jason Carter Eaton and Mark Fearing, and ‘Mother Bruce’ by Ryan T. Higgins. If you’re looking for giggles and heartwarming messages then these books are for you. PS. How many times do you think we said ‘ducklings’ instead of ‘goslings’? Oh fooey, I guess we’ll need to go to the beach!

Emma (6 yo) and her favorite whacky creatures on Mutasia

Do you ever wonder what would happen if a gecko-crab-rhino ended up as one animal? Have you ever told a little white lie? Then you need to order “Figley’s Little White Lie” by Suzanne Cotsakos and Ryan McCulloch immediately. Our Book Butterfly, Emma, shows us this unique and imaginative book which follows Figley on his misadventure through the repercussions of a little white lie (plus a few other lies). Get your giggles and imagination going!

Ps. If your kids are into singalong songs, check out Mutasia’s youtube channel and find some silly songs to get singing. (Emma may have taken us through a few of these and LOVED them.)

Remi (9 yo) and his epic battles found in nature!

If you ever think that nature is boring, think again. This week we interviewed our awesomely enthusiastic Book Butterfly, Remi, who loves the “Who Would Win” non-fiction books by Gerard Larry Pallotta. He knows ALL the facts and loves to tell you about them. We had a blast interviewing him. He reminded us that nature and natural facts are wicked cool, and more importantly, he reminded us not to surf near a hippopotamus.

Loden (11 yo) and his awesome adventure books!

Loden (not Logan, if you please!) is an enthusiastic reader. By enthusiastic, we mean SO ENTHUSIASTIC! He’s just the type of kid you want to talk to about adventure books, too. He reviewed the Ember Series by Jeanne DuPrau and the Land of Series by Chris Colfer, which are some seriously cool books. Interesting characters, detailed plots, and imagination abound. (And towards the end he interviewed your host a bit, too!)

Katie (11yo) – You know Peeta is better, because his name doesn’t rhyme with ‘fail’

Our first double-digit Book Butterfly! Katie is 11 years old and a fan of The Hunger Games. Find out who she’s rooting for, what inspired the books, and what’s important in life. (hint: it’s to have a chuckle now and again!)

 

Brea (9yo) – Is imagination like seeing the future?

Meet Brea, a beautiful mind full of stories, including ones about Amelia Bedelia! We’ll find out what her favorite parts are of Amelia Bedelia Unleashed, things to do to prank your grandmother, and what she thinks about reading overall.

Declan (5yo) – Hey, is that a blue T-rex? (She’s the captain!)

Our first Book Butterfly: Declan and his special Pirates!

Declan is a sweet (almost) 5-year-old who loves to read about these dynamic dinosaurs. Root for the underdog (or underdino, as it were) and see what happens as the underdino dodges ropes, dirty water, walking the plank and a particularly pernicious pterodactyl.
