The Lamb & the Butterfly

The Lamb and the Butterfly
Arnold Sundgaard

                Little lamb is excited to meet a butterfly in the middle of his meadow one day. He has so many questions to ask the butterfly about where he is from and why he flutters. But the little lamb has a hard time understanding the free spirited butterfly. Why can’t the butterfly be just like him and stay in the meadow? The lamb begs the butterfly to never leave, but the butterfly doesn’t listen. Finally after being caught in a storm together the little lamb begins to understand why the butterfly can’t stay with him. Parents will love the message about accepting others for who they are and understanding that everyone is different or might have different needs. The story flows well and is somewhat lyrical. Bright, cheerful illustrations help tell the story. Children will love the bold brush strokes and large images. Both of my children enjoyed this book and commented on the story and illustrations. 

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
