Mariposa La Free read Ó 5 review Mariposa La 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. La MariposaWritten by Francisco Jimenez Illustrated by Simon SilvaPublished by Houghton Mifflin Company NY NY 1998Approx Interest Level Grade 2 4This story revolves around a young boy who is a native Spanish speaker and how he copes with living in a culture that he is struggling to understand In this story Francisco the young boy struggles to understand English and loses interest in school while increasing his interest in a classroom caterpillar which is the only thing he can connect to in his unfamiliar surroundings I thought that this perspective of immigration and encountering new cultures was dynamic interesting and true to life Although Francisco is not placed in a certain setting or time period his experience is parallel and similar to many children or adults who encounter a new culture and language His struggles with other children lack of material possessions and desire to fit in cross cultural boundaries allows many readers from various backgrounds to identify with Francisco easily Also some Spanish words and phrases are included in the text which allows the reader to understand Francisco in his own language The illustrations add greatly to the text and do hint to a time period in the past but still allow the reader to imagine the actions of Francisco at times Also the style of the illustrations is an extremely realistic portrayal of the events which adds to the sincerity of the story Overall La Mariposa is a great example of a multidimensional complex portrayal of immigration and assimilation into an unknown culture
