Yellow Butterfly

yellow butterfly

A wordless picture book portrayal of war seen through the eyes of a young girl who finds hope in the symbolism of yellow butterflies against the background of a pure blue sky. Using the colors of his national flag, Oleksandr Shatokhin has created a deeply emotional response to the conflict in Ukraine and provided a narrative full of powerful visual metaphors for readers to consider as they travel from the devastating effects of war to a place of hope for peace and the future. A portion of the sale of this book will be donated to the Universal Reading Foundation who supply children's books to Ukraine. Back matter includes notes on sharing a wordless picture book and how to talk to children about war. ---from the publisher
