Francisco Jiménez, interviewed in his studio in Santa Clara, California on May 25, 2002. Everything that I write is based on the things I experienced as a child and as a young adult. I feel that it’s important to document this experience because it is part of the American experience of coming to this country, looking for a better way of life, seeking sometimes what we call the American dream. Writing the Story I wrote the books in English.

When Francisco starts school, his classroom has a caterpillar in a jar, and he watches as it turns into a butterfly. He is a Spanish-only speaker in an English. Other Books You Might Like.

Books by Francisco Jimenez. The Circuit: Stories from the Life of a Migrant Child. Reaching Out. Francisco Jimenez.

In his first year of school, Francisco understands little of what his teacher says. But he is drawn to the silent, slow-moving caterpillar in the jar next to his desk. He knows caterpillars turn into butterflies, but just how do they do it? To find out, he studies the words in a butterfly book so many times that he can close his eyes and see the black letters, but he still can't understand their meaning. Illustrated with paintings as deep and rich as the wings of a butterfly, 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 schools.

This is a beautiful book. I teach in a Dual-Language school, and this book is a very important story for children. This book illustrates a relatable experience for our immigrant and migrant student populations, but MORE IMPORTANTLY, it helps students from more fortunate or stable backgrounds to empathize. La Mariposa is a helpful story for children, parents, and teachers.

I purchased the ebook edition to augment my hardbound copy of this story. I'm sorry to say that the formatting of the ebook is not very good. I wanted to project the pages on the screen while I read, but the formatting doesn't really allow for a smooth presentation. Instead, I will probably just use my classroom document camera as I read.

This was a very sweet story and one that is relevant to today's immigrants. I t struck home with me because my father was an immigrant although not at such a young age. We also mentor very young immigrants at an elementary school and I see situations similar to some in this story.

I am so grateful schools are more accepting now of bilingualism. When my mother went to school she was not allowed to speak Spanish at all in school. Such a shame but I understand the need for total immersion too. A more moderate approach seems so much better.

I ordered this for my Spanish students, after reading a review and purchasing lesson plans. Knowing that it was published in both English and Spanish, I was surprised and disappointed that a book titled “La Mariposa” was in English.

This book is one chapter from another book by the same author, Cajas de Carton. The illustrations are stunning. I bought this book strictly for the illustrations, but enjoy the books written by this author. I don't know whether there is an English version or not. I didn't look, because I am learning Spanish and want to be able to read proficiently in the language.

Having read "The Circuit" by the same author, I was eager to read "La Mariposa" to my younger students. Francisco Jimenez creates beautifully written semi-autobiographical stories about life as a child of a family of migrant farmers from Mexico. The the eyes of the main character, Francisco, we experience a child's first day in a new school, where he is the object of stares and, at the hands of a bully, ridicule. However, Francisco is a dreamer, and he conveys his dreams through beautiful pictures of... butterflies. The goodness of his teacher and classmates shine through in the end of this beautiful and sensitive story as they admire his artwork and share in his dream.

I am an elementary Spanish teacher. I haven't used the book so far because it is a bit long and very heavily English. I like that it is in English with some Spanish words, I just wish there was a bit more Spanish in it. Also, my classes are rather short (30 minutes) so I haven't been able to set aside the time to read a book this long. But, I think the book is lovely.

Wonderful story! I love it, my family loves it, and my students love it!

This was a wonderful, touching true story of the author's first year in school as a non- English speaker and how he coped with the challenges. Highly recommended!
