"Today is Butterfly Day!" Julianita excitedly tells her grandfather as they make their way down Carmen Street to school one morning. Today is the day Julianita and her friends have been waiting for??they're going to learn about monarch butterflies. But what's even more thrilling is they're each going to receive their very own caterpillar to raise! When Julianita gets hers, she names him Tiger because of his striking yellow and black stripes.

Ms. Rodríguez teaches her students all about the monarch. But Julianita already knows that they fly south thousands of miles every winter because her grandfather remembers seeing the beautiful monarchs in his village in the highlands of Mexico. As the children feed and care for their caterpillars, they anxiously anticipate the transformation from caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly.

When Tiger finally emerges from his chrysalis, Julianita doesn't want to let him go. She worries that he will get lost on his way to Mexico. "Tiger knows the way to Mexico because it's in his heart," her Abuelito reassures her. She feels sad to see Tiger fly away, but Julianita knows that someday, she will follow him to her grandfather's magical Mexico.

Paired with April Ward's charming illustrations that depict Julianita's neighborhood??her home on Carmen Street, the bench where Abuelito rests in Palo Verde Park, her parents' store that sells everything in the whole wide world??this book by award-winning author Monica Brown is sure to entertain and educate kids ages 3-9. This is a perfect choice for children learning about insects and the forces of n… (mere)

This story is told side-by-side in both English and Spanish, and is about a little girl who gets to raise a monarch butterfly from caterpillar to butterfly for a school project. She learns from her grandfather that the butterflies migrate to his childhood home in Mexico each year, and Julia voices a desire to travel to Mexico and see her grandfather's home, and visit the butterflies. There is a small science aspect to the book, as it describes the general process that metamorphizes caterpillars into butterflies, and touches on their migratory patterns, but it also does a good job of connecting those same butterflies to Julia's culture and heritage.

"Butterflies on Carmen Street" is a wonderful children's story, that goes through the experiences that the main character, Julianita, who learns about the life cycle of monarch butterflies. This book is great at introducing students to Spanish terms, and also providing students who have a better understanding of Spanish, a full translation of the text. One of its major bonuses, is that it allows the reader to understand a little bit of the main character's Mexican heritage, and how that factors into what terms they use, and what values they have. This book would be best used to inspire a writing assignment about the power of one's experience with nature (specifically with insects). ( )

The book is about a girl excited for butterfly day at school. Her grandpa shares his experience from back home in Mexico with butterflies. The book is about life and letting things go and one day you may see it again. I think that the book can be read to any grade in elementary and it would be great for a bilingual classroom. There are some vocabulary words that can be chosen if teaching a lesson about butterflies. ( )

This book is about a girl who's class learns about the life cycle of the butterfly. The pictures are unbelievably brilliant in color and help the text come to life.
