Today we celebrate Butterfly Day, a time to go out and gaze at some of nature’s most beautiful creatures. Lois Ehlert always knew she wanted to be an artist, and her parents encouraged her by giving her a private space to create art. At the back of the book, Ehlert provides scale drawings of various butterflies and plants, as well as information about each species.
As someone who grew up in Indiana, I have always loved the fact that Ehlert draws on the natural world around her—these are the butterflies of my youth.

So on Butterfly Day, pick up Waiting for Wings and go out and search for these glorious creatures. Read A Perfect Father’s Day by Eve Bunting, illustrated by Susan Meddaugh, and Father’s Day by Anne Rockwell, illustrated by Lizzy Rockwell.It’s World Sauntering Day, so slow down and enjoy the world around you! But it wasn’t until the late eighties that she began experimenting with intense color collages to explore her favorite subject matter—the natural world—in books like Growing Vegetable Soup.
My favorite butterfly book since 2001 has been Lois Ehlert’s Waiting for Wings, an oversized volume that highlights butterflies and the plants that sustain them. In Waiting for Wings the reader can experience both a fictional story and nonfiction information in one book. I long ago made a gift of my paperback version of the book to make room for a hard cover copy, the ideal way to experience the content. Moving to a small trailer in a poor section of Schenectady, New York, Addie, an endearing sixth-grader, shows spunk, optimism, and resourcefulness when her irresponsible mother neglects her.

On small, partial pages in this large book, Ehlert shows the growth and development of these creatures. But when the butterflies finally emerge, she uses the full page to emphasize their size and beauty.
Although she cultivates caring relationships with her unique neighbors, she yearns for a normal life.
