Arnold Sundgaard's story is about a lamb who makes friends with a beautiful butterfly. The butterfly tries to leave in the summer but is forced to stay with the lamb during a rainstorm. Later it must fly off to migrate. The story isn't the greatest but of course, the Eric Carle drawings are the best! The pictures are what drew me to choose this book. The 3rd star for the usual delightful illustrations by Eric Carle, which carry the story. This book could be combined with The Very Hungry Caterpillar, but it will definitely be found lacking compared to Carle's classic butterfly story. Oct 05, 2011 Brittney rated it really liked it.

Before reading my comment, please bear in mind that I am a very uncensorious person who believes in giving children free range of reading matter; I was raised that way, raised my children that way, and want to see my grandchildren raised that way. However, I tried to imagine reading this beautifully illustrated (though syntactically very strange) book to any of my 2-8 year old grandchildren, and realized it would TERRIFY them. The spooky way it treats the separation of mothers and offspring, along with its implications that freedom is scary and potentially dangerous to warmblooded life, makes this a book I really don't want to have where my grandpeople can get hold of it while I'm babysitting them. They'd be screaming for their mother within minutes. This is the only book I've ever returned for a refund!

There's a cute little phrase that's repeated over and over again in the book. Other than that, it's kind of an odd story. What's the moral to this story? Not sure. Is it, there are people that are different from you, so don't get too tied up in getting to know them, because the relationship won't last.

This would be a good book for teachers to do during a butterfly science unit. The author's note at the back of the book said the idea came to him when he became fascinated with learning about bird and butterfly migration. Of course students will point out that the butterfly in the story is not a monarch, but this is a good opportunity for them to learn that monarchs are not the only butterflies that migrate. http://www.thebutterflysite.com/butterfly-migration.shtml

At first glance this looks like a new Eric Carle book. The cover has Eric Carle's signature at the top and then the title. However, a closer glance at the bottom shows the author to be Arnold Sundgaard. Eric Carle is the illustrator. A look at the copyright page shows this story was published in 1988, however this particular edition came out in February 2013.

Overall it's a fine story and it would make a good read aloud, especially because the illustrations are easy to see and the story is likeable.
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.
