A beautiful book with a beautiful moral
I brought this for my kindle today. This e-book is equally as valuable to adults as it is to children. The author and illustrator have done well to collaborate to make it look enticing to children and I believe they will enjoy the story again and again. The e-book tells of a butterfly that is scared to do something different. Not until he sees what can be gained by stepping out of his comfort zone can he see what is on offer. The moral is that humans as well as butterflies need to take a step – that unknown – so that we can make a difference with our lives. The way that the author tells it will have children (and adults) wanting to try something different. It is beautifully told and laid out, making it a very easy on the eye e-book. It would be easily read several times over. As a first published book, it is very well put together.
The images in the book are beautifully drawn and painted, and compliment the story perfectly. The inside back states that the inspiration for the illustrations come from Edwards’ niece.
