Iris and the Dragonflies is a novel written by Rosemary Danielis. The book is all about an eleven year old child named Iris. Unlike all other children, she prefers staying on the creek instead of playing with her friends. She also does not like going to school, not because of her resistance for learning but because of the fact the she can't relate with her classmates. Her only friends are the dragonflies. It amazes her how she can connect and relate with these creatures. To me it seems to be a very special thing for her. She is a great girls and just has a love for something but others think it is different.
Nonetheless, Iris is a special and loving child. She cares for the environment and enjoys doing great things for everyone. Her deep connection with the dragonflies became stronger especially when she learned about her destiny. My most favorite conversation in the book is this: Iris:
"A journey? Where am I going?" Lea (dragonfly): "It's a journey into the future. Don't worry Iris, you are not alone. We are all in this journey together."
The relationship of Iris with the dragonflies is exceptional. It was only with these creatures that she learned the true meaning of friendship. As it take something for many people to learn the true meaning of friendship. Some are adults before they ever learn this. I think is it so wonderful that such a wonderful little girl can learn such a heard lesson at a young age but also from the tiniest thing you could ever thing of, a dragon fly.
This novel is a certified must-read! It's perfect for all ages. You can read it yourself and allow Iris to bring you back to your childhood days. You can also give this book to your kids and teach them about how Iris managed to fulfill her destiny.
