I make this wish on wings of love
And send into the sky above
That Mother holds me every day
And never, ever goes away.
Young Ella never forgets the wish she made upon the wings of a butterfly, even as the years pass by. Ella's mother also makes a butterfly wish, full of strength and love. With Irena Roman's timeless watercolor illustrations, Kathy-jo Wargin's touching story shows that the bond between mother and daughter is as unbreakable as it is tender.

Kathy-jo Wargin is the best-selling and award-winning author of such books as The Legend of Sleeping Bear, illustrated by Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen, and Win One for the Gipper, illustrated by Bruce Langton. She lives in beautiful northern Michigan with her family and two dogs, Lilly and Salmon.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3 When a mother and her daughter come upon some butterflies while picking flowers, the woman explains that, according to legend, if you whisper your wish to a butterfly, it will carry your words to the stars and your wish will come true. The daughter whispers that she wants always to be with her mother, and her mother asks that her child will soar free in the world. In this sweet story that occasionally borders on saccharine, both wishes come true. The quiet, low-key story is brought to life by the lush watercolor illustrations. The verdant and colorful depiction of the landscape instantly evokes the feel of a midsummer day while Roman's attention to detail gives the characters authenticity. This realistic portrayal takes the edge off the sometimes-cloying text. A gentle tale of familial love that is good for individual sharing, especially at bedtime.
