ABOUT THE BOOK
Claudia loves butterflies. How colorful they are. How beautiful they are. And when she wishes she could bring one home, her parents give her a paint set to bring their colors home. But when winter comes, and snow, all the butterflies disappear. There is no color. Claudia puts her paints away . . . until an especially cold day when she spots a moth fly out of an old sweater. It looks like a butterfly. It flies like a butterfly. Could it become a butterfly?
