Pinkalicious and the Little Butterfly by Victoria Kann - OPTIONAL

Kann, Victoria  Pinkalicious and the Little Butterfly  Harper Festival, 2016.  $4.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.   

Pinkalicious brings flowers to her teacher at school, but her teacher has an even bigger surprise-a box with caterpillars in it.  The class learns that the caterpillars are going to grow into butterflies.  Pinkalicious feeds her flowers to the caterpillar and loves it, so when 2 of the 3 caterpillar change into butterflies, Pinkalicious is worried about her favorite one because he hasn’t come out of his chrysalis yet.  Eventually he turns into a butterfly too and the best kind because he is pink.   

This is a typical Pinkalicious story.  The illustrations are okay, and when the butterfly turns pink it makes everything even better.  There are stickers in the middle of the book.  The explanations about caterpillars turning into butterflies was well done.  If Pinkalicious is well liked at your library this will be a hit.

EL (K-3) – OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
