Willa's Butterfly Ballet

Willa's Butterfly Ballet (American Girl, WellieWishers). Judy Katschke. 2018. Scholastic. 32 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: It's a sunny day in the garden.

Premise/plot: Willa's Butterfly Ballet is a Level 2 early reader. In the book, Willa and her friends discover five chrysalises almost ready to turn into butterflies. The girls decide to turn the occasion into a party. The girls will dress up and dance when the butterflies emerge. The girls ready their costumes and plan their dance moves, but all doesn't go according to plan. Willa's costume doesn't stay "perfect" for long. How will Willa cope with the situation?

My thoughts: I definitely enjoyed this early reader much more than the Meet the WellieWishers picture book. It includes a paper doll of Willa. I am assuming that there will be more books in the series so that by collecting the books one will soon have all five WellieWishers in paper doll format.
