Editorial Reviews

Authors Choice Reviews
This book is a dance of words and color, about a young girl, filled with the joy of life, watching a caterpillar become a butterfly. The illustrations are a swirl of deep, rich color, more like paintings than picture book illustrations that envelop the reader and draw the reader into the wonder of life. Beautifully done.
—Carolyn Scheidies
The Midwest Book Review
Featuring gorgeous, incredibly detailed and vibrant colored pencil artwork, Meadow Dance is a lighthearted children's picture book about an afternoon nap and butterfly dreams. A little girl sleeping under a blanket of meadow flowers in=s the gateway to dazzling adventure on butterfly wings. As delightful to read aloud as it is to contemplate the rainbow of colors on every page, meadow Dance is especially recommended as a way to celebrate the spirit of spring with young people.
Children's Literature - Debra Lampert-Rudman
Imagine going to sleep dreaming of butterflies, waking up covered with butterflies, and then flying in the sky with butterflies. If this intrigues you, then Meadow Dance will delight you. Filled to overflowing with lush, colorful illustrations, each double-page spread features a developing butterfly in either the far left or far right corner depicted in black and white. Growing from caterpillar to butterfly while the girl sleeps, the book unfolds into a magical celebration of life and summertime. A perfect picture book for summer time reading, the simple text works well with the illustrations and will encourage reading aloud. This book could be used for introductory science discussions about butterfly development. A part of the "Wonderlands Series." Reviewer: Debra Lampert-Rudman

What People are Saying About This

Jennifer Reed
"Visually appealing, Meadow Dance will awaken your sense of sight! This beautifully illustrated story is about a girl who falls asleep in a meadowof flowers and dreams of being swept away by butterflies. Interestingly, inblack and white on each spread, there is a small illustration of a butterfly in it's cocoon ready to take flight. These illustrations show the phase a butterfly goes through from larvae, to caterpillar to butterfly. A lovely book for summer -time reading!"--(Wee Ones, Jennifer Reed)
