MY REVIEW

Stuart, Melissa. Butterfly Love from Above. Illustrated by Kate Solenova. McKinney, TX: Performance Publishing Group, 2022.

Butterfly Love from Above is a book young children will enjoy. Melissa Stuart based this on a true story. In Butterfly Love from Above, provides children with a beautiful story to help through loss. Star develops a “friendship” with a butterfly. When the butterfly stops coming around, she relies on her memories of Twinkle. When a new friend comes into her life in the form of a horse named Luna, she shares him with lonely kids from school. 

Kate Solenova created beautiful illustrations which compliment the text well. Kids will enjoy looking at them while listening to the book.

As an adult who occasionally struggles with unfulfilled dreams, I was encouraged by the author’s note at the end of the book. Instead of focusing on her dreams that hadn’t come true, Melissa chose to re-write her story. 

Butterfly Love from Above would be a nice addition to the picture book section of a K-12 Christian school library. 

I received a complimentary copy of Butterfly Love from Above. This is my honest review. 

MEET THE AUTHOR – MELISSA STUART:

Melissa Stuart lives in Los Angeles, California with her family, their English Mastiff, Gucci, and their pony, Luna! Melissa and her husband stay busy traveling all over the country with their boys’ hockey teams. She loves being a Hockey Mom and watching her boys chase their dream of following in their dad’s footsteps to play in the NHL! Her happy place is with her little girl, Stella, at the barn surrounded by horses and their precious Luna. Sun Valley, Idaho is her family’s favorite summer getaway destination. When they’re there, Melissa feels most inspired to write sitting by the river, surrounded by mountains and nature! Her dream of becoming a published author for the first time came true in early 2021, as she shared her story “Find Your Sunshine” in a book co-written by 10 other inspiring authors—all of whom were sharing stories about shining their light and becoming difference makers in the world! Melissa hopes this story will inspire children to always look up. She wishes to teach them that true joy comes when we shine our
own light and show kindness to others. That’s the secret to finding our sunshine!
