“Señorita Mariposa” Review

It is truly an honor to recommend the bilingual children’s book “Señorita Mariposa” by the author Ben Gundersheimer (also known as Mister G.) and illustrated by Marcos Almada Rivero. This beautiful book was just released a few weeks ago! The story is based off one of Mister G’s songs and inspired through his international travels.

I love the idea to motivate children to protect the Monarch butterflies. During one of my vacation trips to the Florida Keys, I had the opportunity to visit “The Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory” and it was an amazing experience. I had so much fun and learned so much about butterflies around the world. Books like this one are excellent educational tools to teach children to value and have empathy for nature.

Loved the high quality hard cover and pages of the book! The illustrations are marvelous! My son really enjoyed exploring and finding the butterflies in every page, he counted the butterflies in each page and appreciated the colors. We learned so much about the Monarch butterflies by reading this book. I definitely recommend this bilingual book! You can purchase the book HERE.

|Es un honor presentar el libro infantil bilingüe “Señorita Mariposa” por el autor Ben Gundersheimer (también conocido como Mister G.) e ilustrado por Marcos Almada Rivero. Este hermoso libro acaba de ser publicado hace solo unas semanas. La historia es basada en una de las canciones por Mister G. e inspirada por sus viajes internacionales.

Me encanta la idea de motivar a los niños a proteger las mariposas monarcas. Durante una de mis vacaciones en Key West, Florida, tuve la oportunidad de visitar “The Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory” y fue una experiencia maravillosa. Me divertí y aprendí mucho sobre las mariposas alrededor del mundo. Libros como estos son excelentes recursos para enseñar a niños a valorar y tener compasión por la naturaleza.

El libro es de muy buena calidad y las ilustraciones son preciosas. A mi hijo le encanto explorar las páginas, encontrar las mariposas, contar cuantas mariposas hay en cada página y apreciar los colores. Aprendimos mucho sobre la mariposa monarca a través de este libro. ¡Definitivamente recomendamos este libro bilingüe! Puedes conseguir el libro AQUÍ.
