About the Book
The story highlights diverse characters; each one of them represents diverse life-styles. It motivates children to select which life style would help them to fulfill their dreams in life.
This story highlights the value of keeping a promise to a friend. It is portrayed on the Butterfly’s character. The quest for knowledge requires effort and dedication. However, when you read the story you will discover how the Flower’s dreams became a reality.
I want to motivate children on the importance of intellectual fulfilment in their lives. Sometimes, this quest moves you beyond your surroundings.
