This is a cute story about love in many forms. It shows a kind of maternal love and friendship. The illustrations are so cute, with subdued backgrounds that let the main characters, a girl and her duck, shine.
The only reason I didn't give his book a 5 is the confusing depiction of the girl. At some points, she appears younger and at other times she almost seems like an adult. Plus, there are no other characters present to compare her too. It made me drift away from the cuteness of the story a bit to contemplate, is this child all alone (where are her parents) raising a duck or is she a youthful adult? Still, I don't expect this to be an issue for younger readers.
I told her we’d eventually be letting the butterflies go because they can’t live with in our house forever. She teared up saying she didn’t want to let them go and wanted them to live with her so I bought her this book. This book helped her understand that we did our part with the caterpillars and provided them food and a safe place but once they transition as butterflies they are ready to live out their lives and will be happier outside the netted cage. She understood but mentioned she’d still be very sad. Makes me think to how we will go through the same emotions in 14 years when she leaves the nest to head off to college.

I am an artist as well, and I didn't buy it for a child but for myself. But I could see myself reading this story to my niece.
I love that Claire Keane portraits a little black girl with her nappy, curly, beautiful hair and that the story by Diane Adams is about LOVE.
Super sweet, cute and inspiring!
A most have!
