The Butterfly Catcher by Courtney Cox Smith

With full-page color illustrations, The Butterfly Catcher is a heart-warming tale that ponders the question “where do our loved ones go when they die?” Through playful verse and a fanciful story, the book communicates to children of all ages how we carry those we love with us always. After a young boy is told by his mother that his lost brother “flies with the butterflies,” The Butterfly Catcher follows the boy as he goes in search of his lost brother. Along his journey, the boy encounters a creative cast of characters as he catches one butterfly after another, from the stern intensity of the Swallowtail to the silly playfulness of the Painted Lady to the gruff and grumpy Luna Moth to an encounter with a beautifully wise Monarch. In the end, the boy learns the sweetest of messages, that those we have loved and lost are never far away but live on through each one of us.
