Velma Gratch and the Way Cool Butterfly

by

Velma Gratch and the Way Cool Butterfly Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

IT'S HARD TO BE VELMA entering first grade. That's because everyone has marvelous memories of her two older sisters, who were practically perfect first graders, and no one even notices Velma. But all that changes on a class trip to the butterfly conservatory, a place neither of her sisters has been. When a monarch roosts on Velma's finger and won't budge for days - no one will ever forget it . . . or her!Kids will enjoy reading about everything butterflies, from migration to metamorphosis, as they follow Velma's own transformation.

Synopsis:

Velma starts first grade in the shadow of her memorable older sisters, and while her newfound interest in butterflies helps her to stand out, it also leads to an interesting complication.
