The Complaining Caterpillar

by Sandy Islands

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
In this first story of The Magical Butterfly series, a complaining caterpillar is very unhappy with her life on the ground. She is visited by an angel who invites her to have faith that a transformation is about to take place. When she becomes the butterfly, her name is Faith.
Energy Illumination presents The Magical Butterfly series which are 4 rhyming children's picture books. The Complaining Caterpillar is the first in the series that have been completed as audio books. A link to the audio story is included. The feedback I've received from parents and children who've listened to the audio books is that there are lessons to be learned by all in joyful and fun ways. After the Complaining Caterpillar becomes Faith, the butterfly, she is the inspiring character who brings a wakeup call in the next three books. In each one, we meet the main character demonstrating his flaws until he's inspired to grow and find a more positive way to live. The other books to come are The Sneaky Snake, The Lazy Lizard, and The Timid Turtle. All four audio books have been produced with music and sound effects and are read by Bryce McBratnie, a professional actor. Samantha Jo Phan, my illustrator has completed the journey of bringing these books and characters to life.
