I spent a pleasant Saturday morning with my grandchildren while we had opportunity to listen to a reading of “Amazing Matilda” by Bette Stevens. In the end we downloaded the eBook as well. I can really recommend this little gem, not just for younger readers, but even older ones like myself who care about the natural world around us and love to explore this world by means of stories such as this.
Here follows our review:
“This Saturday morning my grandchildren and I listened to the reading of “Amazing Matilda” by Blossom. We enjoyed the story very much. My granddaughter (10 years old) said, ‘I like the alliterations and the lesson that you can do anything if you have patience to follow your dreams. If you give her four-and-half stars, which is about 95%, it’ll be good.’ And my grandson (7 years old) said, ‘I like the giant words like metamorphosis and the characters in your book. Fortunately the Monarch is poisonous and the sparrow didn’t eat Matilda. I liked when Matilda got her wings and I give her four-and-half stars, and I want to buy the book.’
So for now , I’ve downloaded “Amazing Matilda” – such an inspiring little story. Thanks for writing and illustrating this story, making young and old aware of butterflies.”
