Book Description From the Front Cover Flap

Kiri loves to make things. When she receives an origami set for her birthday, she canít wait to try making a butterfly, just like the one Auntie Lu had made. Kiri chooses a bright purple paper and carefully follows the steps, but the paper tears after just four folds. Her beautiful paper is ruined!

Disappointed but not discouraged, Kiri continues to practice making origami butterflies. Then one spring day in the park Kiri is inspired to make a picture of what she sees, and her creative and colorful solution turns out to be more rewarding than she could have imagined.

Butterflies for Kiri is a gentle testament to a childís determination and creativity, and like Kiri, children will be inspired to make their own origami butterflies. Easy-to-follow instructions are provided at the end of the story.

Background on the Author from the Back Cover Flap

Cathryn Falwell is the author and illustrator of numerous award-winning books for children, including David's Drawings, a Parents' Choice Recommended Book published by Lee & Low, and Turtle Splash, an ALA Notable Book. The idea for Butterflies for Kiri came from Falwell's childhood experience with a box of art supplies she received from her aunt. The art supplies were so beutiful, it was many years before Falwell could bring herself to use them. Falwell lives in Gorham, Maine, with her husband and their two sons.
