About the Book
In Glasswings: A Butterfly's Story,Claire, a glasswing butterfly whose transparent wings reflect her lush home, finds herself lost in the city after being separated from her family. She doesn’t know how they will ever see her, but she finds new city friends, a pigeon, an ant, and a ladybug, who search for the flowers Claire needs to live.



They come upon a tiny urban garden, and as Claire drinks from the flowers’ nectar, she pollinates more flowers. Soon the garden—and Claire's clear wings—fill with color, allowing her family to recognize her at last. Together they create an oasis for all to enjoy. Facts about glasswing butterflies and pollination complete this beautiful and educational picture book. Kleven’s latest offering is as colorful and delicate as a butterfly’s wings—a treasure that can be cherished for years.

My Take on the Book
In the beginning of the book, Elisa Kleven explains that Glasswings are butterflies who appear to be invisible due to the colorless scales on their wings. It is interesting to know that these butterflies live in Central and South America.

So the story illustrates how important butterflies are to pollinating flowers. It also encourages us to create habitats for butterflies in our gardens.

This is a delightful story to read and one you will enjoy sharing with your young child.
