Wee Reads: A Box of Butterflies by Jo Rooks

Ever since Finn was born, and even before then, we would read to him. We wanted to show him reading from an early age. Now he loves us to read the same books, over, and over, and over. But it is the sweetest thing, when he likes to pick out a book and climb into our laps.

Ruby describes emotions to her Robot, who doesn't know what they are or how they feel. She teaches him what each feels like ("love feels like a box of butterflies!") and when she feels them ("I sometimes feel that way when I'm told no more TV!"). This book is an introduction to social-emotional learning and affective education for kids.

Do you like this book?
Yeah! It has a robot and I love robots!

What's your favorite part of the book?
The robot is pretty cool. And I like when he gets mad and explodes like a big volcano! And I like when she hugs the robot and they love each other.

What do you think of the cover?
The butterflies are very pretty and they are flying around the robot!

Do you want me to read it again?

This is a really great book that teaches children about emotions and feelings. I think children's books that teach this is so important, so children understand why they're feeling the way they do.

One of my favorite parts is that she says that the bad feelings won't last. That it's fleeting.

This book goes through emotions like love, jealousy, anger, and worry. 

A Box of Butterflies has amazing artwork, beautiful colors, and an absolutely amazing message. 

We received an ARC copy of this book to review. So the words were a little wonky.
