Product Description

Hope for the Flowers is a tale partly about life and partly about revolution and lots about hope for adults and others (including caterpillars who can read). This item is illustrated in the style of a children's book, but is more of a parable. It's a different sort of book for everyone except those who have given up completely (and even they might secretly enjoy it.)

Publisher's Description

Hope's theme of life, moving through seeming death to a new and more beautiful life, has touched the hearts of millions of people. Hope for the Flowers is for young and old, lovers, husbands and wives. It's a book to learn to read with, or to comfort those who are dying or grieving. In the tale, the caterpillar heroes, Stripe and Yellow, want something more from life than eating and growing bigger. They get caught up in a "caterpillar pillar," a squirming mass of bodies, each determined to reach a top so far away it can't be seen. Finally disillusioned, they discover that the way for the caterpillars to find their particular "more," who they really are, is to enter the cocoon and ..".risk for the butterfly." Hope for the Flowers has helped people gain the courage to leave jobs, change their lives and explore their love for another human being. Over two million copies in print.

    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 review was written for Hope for the Flowers.
    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.
