A charming little tale of how butterflies got their color. It's very cute story that I think would catch the interest of young students. It also has a lesson about the power of words. Students area able to learn about the beauty of silence in this colorfully illustrated book. ( )

When the world was young, butterflies were too noisy sounds. The little boy whimpered, “Noisy. Too noisy.” The girl said, “Leave us alone, you ugly, noisy things!” But then, when the storm came, butterflies waited in silent for the storm to pass. Time went by; butterflies would gently light on children’s arms and on their heads. In the air, the boy said, “Pretty. So pretty.” Children will get to know the changing of nature.
