Tterfly this honest unsentimental account of a schoolchild's struggle to learn language reveals that our imaginations powerfully sustain us La Mariposa makes a subtle plea for tolerance in our homes our communities and in our schoo. In this book a boy named Francisco is starting the first grade and cannot speak any English He is struggling in the classroom because he cannot understand anything the teacher is saying So he just decides to daydream because listening to the teacher had started giving him headaches Francisco really enjoyed art class because he could draw anything that he wanted to One day the teacher hung one of his drawings up in the board for the class to see but soon it just disappeared Francisco has a fascination with a caterpillar that was located next to his seat in the classroom There was book that he would look at and try to read what the words were saying By the end of the first grade Francisco did not pick up very many English words but he could relate to a few English words and picture This book is from a child s viewpoint about his experience in the first grade and some of the struggles he faced That is true in so many of the school systems in America today
