This is a book about a little lamb who is following around a butterfly asking it many questions. When the butterfly attempts to leave a storm comes and puts a stop to his leaving. The lamb helps the butterfly until the sun comes out and dries the butterflies wings. Now the butterfly would like to stay but has to migrate South for winter. It's a cute little story for young children. The story is by Arnold Sundgaard but the pictures are by Eric Carle. This book serves as a good model for working together as two people to produce a really good book. ( )
