Summary

Affirming capacities for adaptation, reclamation, and renewal, Beautiful Butterfly guides children and adults towards an appreciation of their own inevitable transformations, and explores childhood growth and transition, by means of photography interlaced with American haiku poetry.  
Presented in five "chapters," the photography in Beautiful Butterfly is laid out in gorgeous, full color, with one haiku written in accordance with each chapter title. 
Parents are encouraged to read the poetry to children, who are too young to read on their own, while allowing their children to narrate those pages which contain no writing at all.   
The art in Beautiful Butterfly is dedicated to young people, and the families of young people, who have transitioned from this life and into the next. Rather than mourning their transition, Beautiful Butterfly celebrates transformation by suggesting there is no end, only change and new beginnings.

    From the Newbery Medal-winning author of Seedfolks, Paul Fleischman, Joyful Noise is a collection of irresistible poems that celebrates the insect world. 
    Funny, sad, loud, and quiet, each of these poems resounds with a booming, boisterous, joyful noise.  
    The poems resound with the pulse of the cicada and the drone of the honeybee. They can be fully appreciated by an individual reader, but they're particularly striking when read aloud by two voices, making this an ideal pick for classroom use. Eric Beddows′s vibrant drawings send each insect soaring, spinning, or creeping off the page in its own unique way. 
    With Joyful Noise, Paul Fleischman created not only a fascinating guide to the insect world but an exultant celebration of life.
