🦋 I loved this fictional story of a young woman‘s journey to bring her abuela‘s ashes to Mexico for Day of the Dead as it coincides w/ the monarch‘s migration there for winter.

🌳 This author incorporates environmental issues in her novels, so I will definitely be reading more by her.

Back at it with the crafting... Making butterfly wings for The Kid's Halloween costume. She wanted to be a butterfly like me... So I'll be making my own wings after I finish hers. 😂😂😂

EchoLogical @Bookzombie Thanks 😆 4y
Bookzombie @EchoLogical One year I made a cupcake costume for myself. That was a lot of work. I can‘t imagine making two costumes. 4y
EchoLogical @Bookzombie Oh wow! I definitely couldn't handle one cupcake costume, let alone two. I'm only making wings and antennae headbands. I challenge myself to make the cheapest and easiest costumes every year. 😂 4y

@Tamra my dad built this garden, the littles have planted everything in it. All plants in it attract Florida butterflies. We also got to learn about bees and pollination with the pink flowers. They started as only two small plants and kind of took over. But we both know they will all help with veggies as well! 🙂

Tamra Adorable! 4y

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. *Maya Angelou
A journey from Milwaukee to the mountains of Mexico to honor Abuela and the monarchs: coming of age, metamorphoses, separating past from present, the cycle of life.

This book takes you on a path of spiritual awakening and coming of age. It blows you away with the way Mary Alice Monroe uses a butterfly to mark the stages of transformation Luz (the main character) goes through on her journey to self learning.
