Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Reviewed by Erin Nicole Cochran for Readers' Favorite Wings and Feet by author Lisa Reinicke and illustrator Scot McDonald is a children's book that focuses on the friendship of a boy and a butterfly. It has a delightful rhyming quality, hitting you at all levels of emotion, from happy, to anxious, to a touching ending. The illustrations on every page are simple in style, but have a wonderful core of perfection to them. There are warm tones in areas and then there is one area that is darker, that really pops out at you, and nearly takes you into a whole other world in itself. I don't know if this will be true of everyone, but I burst into tears at the end of Lisa Reinicke's Wings and Feet. I'm not sure how a short children's book was able to bring me to tears so quickly, but it was definitely a cathartic experience. The circle of life was touched upon, and I'm a lover of all creatures great and small, so maybe that's why. I remember helping caterpillars into trees so that they wouldn't get squashed on the driveway. There was something about this book that made me think of The Last Unicorn and of The Land Before Time, but I don't want to give everything away about it. You'll have to find out for yourself just how heartwarming it is. This book is perfect for children. They will be delighted by Scot McDonald's illustrations and will hopefully understand the message inside this book, which is plainly understandable. Depending on their age, it might be something that an adult needs to explain to them. It was one of the best children's books I've ever read. Your little one will want you to read it night after night.
