what others are saying

“WHAT IF BUTTERFLIES LOVED SNOW brought me back to the time my children were young and posed the imaginative questions only children think to ask, the questions that fill one’s mind with delightful, magical images. The author got the dialog just right, and the illustrator captured the magic. It’s a warm, comforting, beautifully done book, and I plan to present it to several little children I love.”
