Sardis and Stamm Earns the CLC Seal of Approval

Sardis and Stamm, written by Matthew P. Bettelheim and illustrated by Nicole M. Wong, is a beautiful book with a lovely message.  The Lange's metalmark butterfly is in danger of extinction.  Having lost all but two small parcels of land in Antioch, California for its survival, each butterfly that remains is precious and rare.  When young Sardis comes across an injured metalmark, she treads the path to the butterfly's habitat to help ensure the life of the metalmark will carry on. 

Told in rhyme, employing use of exquisite imagery, this book is a delight to read.  Fantastic illustrations wrap up this book in a perfect little package.  Sardis and Stamm is an excellent addition to any school, classroom and home library.  It provides a rare combination of literary treasures that will keep young readers wanting to come back again and again to experience the pages of this exceptional book.

Sardis and Stamm comes highly recommended and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
