i first read this book in 1972 and as a teen it gave me hope that God was really working in my life for the better...that i was His creation in the making. I was thrilled to find it again. Trina Paulus is still active encouraging people to be hopeful and her wotk to save the butterfly is so encouraging. A must read and re-read for teens to Seniors like me.
This s a tender tale that speaks to the lack of satisfaction with earthbound (wormy) life and worldly goals, and invites the reader to "give up life as he knows it" and grow wings instead. "THE END! - Or is it the beginning?"
This is a wonderful little book with BIG truths inside! The author uses fuzzy little caterpillars and their natural metamorphoses to explain important spiritual principles. The drawings are wonderful and the book reads simply. Whether reading to children, grandchildren, or sharing with adult friends, this is a very special endeavor, which has blessed many. I keep copies in my personal library to give to new parents and grandparents.
