“WeeButterfly: Be ll of Who You Are to Be” by Terry Talentino is a book that will stop you and make you reflect on many, many things – not all of it good. While published by the son, this is the wisdom of his father, Jim Gordon Taletino.
Each section is unique and compelling with an appeal that is hard to explain, you have to read it to fully understand. First there is the individual language that sneaks in to surprise you as your read; ‘Womin’, ‘bootiful’, ‘smilesigh’ and more. They may seem like typos or mistranslated when the son transcribed the pages, but the prologue disabuses of that notion. These are words that are meant to be there, and after reading them – then reading them again in the whole of the book, they make sense, possibly even more sense than more traditional words would.
Inspiring and thought provoking, what appears at first to be ramblings quickly prove golden – words that will cause you to pause. Be free. ( )

I really enjoyed the wisdom Jim Talentino had to offer in ‘WeeButterfly.’ The presentation was really unique—instead of just telling you life how it is, he offers short stories that are full of inspiration and help drive his message home. Some of them are a little quirky, but it adds to the charm and all of them have a purpose to serve. I think ‘Father Pukey’ and ‘No Guarantee Warranty’ spoke to me the most, but I really liked them all.

I’ve always been the kind of person who pondered about what my role was in the world, so in some ways it seemed like Talentino designed ‘WeeButterfly’ just for me. That said, I think anyone could take something away from it. Talentino offers a nice perspective that most of us seem to forget about in our day-to-day lives. It’s nice to be reminded. ( )

Personal transformation at its best - I became intrigued with this author and The ButterflyFree Project after reading "Begedings" about death and dying. A book that touched and inspired me, I wanted to continue the journey and am so glad that I have. "WeeButterfly" is a wonderful and unique look at personal transformation, on nearly any topic that you can think of. Taken from the writings of Father Jim Talentino and edited by his son many years later, this is a touching compilation of stories and experiences that encourage the reader to become attuned to their very own truth and to begin to live it now - not later. There are lessons about making choices, honesty, fear, love, and so much more in this most unique book that had me smiling one moment and teared up the next. A great read for me and I am anxious to continue to the adventure. ( )
