A review by Ahuva Oberstein about a flower and a butterfly Date added to the website 03/14/2021 A cheerful and happy book, with its poems and illustrations, for small children. The songs are full of tenderness and love, connected to nature and the soul. In their soft and loving simplicity, the songs are heard, full of happiness and joy. The book is Judit Karmi's first book for children, after two prose books for adults. It seems that the childish tenderness was there and waiting its turn. I will quote a little of this beauty: "This is a Benelli song about a little love... If I were such a tiny flower then I must have been only for you a long time ago" (Flower and Butterfly) and in "A Song for a Baby Girl": "A light breeze entertains the curtain in the room, A ray of light dances on your eyelashes, girl. A bird on the tree will sing songs to you, sing to you from morning till night, girl" in addition to the beautiful songs, special to the book: a coloring book is attached to it with all the illustrations in Iris Gat's book, illustrations without colors. They invite the reader Fill the young man with the colorful happiness of his life. And another surprise - the first poem in the book, "Flower and Butterfly" is accessible to the reader by scanning the barcode on the back cover. On the front and back covers of the book, landscape and nature photos - happy and pastoral. A children's book that invites the young reader to enjoy and be happy, with fun.
"Flower and Butterfly" is a cheerful, soft, happy and full of love children's songbook. A person's love for his fellow man, love for nature, love for tender children, love and compassion for living, love for the Land of Israel. The poems were written in a rhyme that is pleasant to read and hear, very colorful but to the extent appropriate and pleasing to the eye, attractive and intriguing to reach out and flip through. 2 surprises are attached to the book. One, a barcode on the back of the book which allows listening to the first song "Flower and Butterfly". The second, a coloring booklet containing the book's drawings without color that invite the young reader to color. When I brought the book to my grandson he was overjoyed to receive the book and the accompanying coloring book. And when I read him the songs from the book, he enjoyed coloring in the coloring book. This is a lovely gift book for children aged 5 and up who will enjoy both the book and the coloring book.
