Review: Using butterflies as a metaphor for people conceiving with help from a third party, Flutter and Milo do a “magic baby butterfly dance” to have a baby of their own. Unfortunately, their magic dance doesn’t work until they meet a special butterfly who has “magical spots” that she can lend them. With the help of “scientific technology,” they have a baby butterfly of their own. Colorful illustrations. The story is wordy for children under five and would be best suited for ages seven and up.
