Review & Giveaway: Madame’s Journey Home (Madame Viaja A Su Casa)

Madame’s Journey Home is an endearing, heartfelt story of a Monarch Butterfly’s journey. A young boy and his mother grow vegetables for farmer’s markets and while gathering pumpkins discovered an injured Monarch butterfly. Follow their adventures as they care for the butterfly and help her make her journey home.

This book would be a great addition to discussions about butterflies, migration, life cycles, caring for others, etc. It would also be a fun addition to a butterfly-themed kids yoga class. The paperback book is small (8.25″ x 6″) so it is best suited for small groups or 1-on-1 reading.

    • Hi Mariosa,
      Yes, I received the book. I have been meaning to email you. The kids last week in school has made things a bit crazy. The book is beautiful! We recently ordered caterpillars and watched the life cycle. We had one butterfly whose wings didn’t straighten completely when it came out of the chrysalis so it never flew and did not live very long. I got a bit teary when I read the story.
      My 7 year old loved the story as well. It hit us pretty close to home.
      Thanks very much,
      Alissia
