Kindergarten-Grade 2 A lamb and a butterfly have a conversation during which the habits and behavioral traits of each creature are revealed. The lamb is bound to the earth and closely tied to its mother's side; the butterfly, on the other hand, is free of the pull of the earth and of maternal bonds. As the story progresses, comparisons can be made by readers about the way of life that each creature is destined to follow. The text is straightforward, and the simple story is highly accessible to young readers. Readers can enjoy deeper and broader meanings in that when storms arise and dangers appear, the freedom enjoyed by the butterfly is no longer to be coveted. Readers can move still onea step further as the lamb comes to see that the butterfly has no choice and must fly south to escape the freezing cold weather against which it has no protection. The bold and daring illustrations make the book interesting but, because of a lack of real distinction in either the text or the illustrations, it's an additional purchase.
