Gaining Her Strength

Laia the Butterfly Princess returns to readers with another adventure. This time Laia wants to see the other side of the river. The only problem is it is now fall and very windy. Her delicate wings can not compete with the wind blowing her in the wrong direction. After a long trek, she makes it to the river only to find an alligator crying on the river bank. Laia is afraid of the giant alligator, but she is a strong princess who refuses to let fear prevent her from helping someone in need. It turns out Andy, the alligator has a rotten tooth, and it is making him miserable. Can Laia help Andy feel better, and will she ever make it across the river to see what is on the other side?

Gaining Her Strength: Butterfly Princess Book 3 by author Alisa Wagner is a whimsical picture book about a princess butterfly and her courage and compassion. This magical book teaches children that even if you are small, you can still help others and do good in the world. Laia may be small, but she is smart, she through a way to help Andy and his rotten tooth, and even though she was afraid of him at first, she did not let that fear keep her from doing the right thing.

The artwork in this children’s book by Albert Morales is colorful and engaging. The images are vibrant and draw readers in; you can see Andy’s tears and sense the pain his tooth is causing him. Children will see the transformation in Laia from concerned in afraid to confident and determined.

Kindergarten and early elementary students will find this well-written picture book to be motivational and entertaining. I look forward to seeing what other adventures Laia goes on in future books.
