About the Book
Based on a true story, authors Ann M. Leis and Gail Danziger Klein recount Gail’s mother’s experiences during a tragic time in history—the Holocaust. Inspired by a family photograph, Ann and Gail tell a story not only of hope, but of the strength and courage it took to overcome immense hardship.
Music of the Butterfly: A Story of Hope allows children to view life through Renée’s eyes—a child living through the Holocaust who remained hopeful of a brighter future. Although life can be unfair, this book teaches children the importance of never losing hope even when faced with bullies and incredible obstacles.
