In the story, “Where’s My Mom?” a monkey has separated from its mother, and reaches out to a butterfly for help. This character, the butterfly, exemplifies the words persistent and tenacious. The butterfly leads the monkey to all different animals and all different places within the forest. The butterfly refuses to give up after many failed attempts to find the monkey’s mother. Finally, the butterfly uses the clues that the monkey gave him to find the monkey’s father and is able to reunite the family. ( )
