Critic Reviews

"A bilingual love poem of admiration and respect for the millions of monarch butterflies that journey south to Mexico every year.... Almada Rivero's warm and friendly illustrations showcase the various people and animals the monarch encounters in its 3,000-mile journey.... Gundersheimer's recounting of the lepidoptera's journey is told in a bilingual poem.... Like the butterfly traveling south and north, the languages switch prominence, displaying in the larger font the principal - and rhyming - language in each spread.... Backmatter includes facts on the round trip the butterflies undertake, the 'super generation' that makes the trek south, and a call to action to protect the monarchs as they slowly lose their habitats. Uplifting and inspiring of further research." (Kirkus Reviews)

"The verses are loosely structured as moving along with the butterflies, where the bold curvilinear black font of the text calls to mind the movement of the butterfly.... The text is set to simple verses where the rhyming structure provides a sense of unity and an auditory element that will engage preschoolers during storytime. Kindergartners will also enjoy the digitally made art that brings to life the narrative with emotionally expressive animals and children. The back matter contains Author's Notes referring briefly to the monarchs’ journey, their contribution to the planet, and their struggles with climate change. A playful picture book...that could be used to foster consciousness about protecting the planet and to explain migration and the role of butterflies in pollination." (School Library Journal
