Far Flutterby *Review*

Far Flutterby was written for young readers aged 4-7 and written by Karen Kingsbury and illustrated by Jennifer A. Bell.  Far Flutter introduces Cody the caterpillar in the town of Better-than-Brown.  Cody longs for something more from life than being stuck on the ground watching others fly about.  But, with a little faith and patience, he realizes God has bigger and better plan for him, one which will give him wings and make him a butterfly so he can  take off to anywhere he wishes, including the wonderful land of Far Flutterby.  
Far Flutterby is a whimsical read that will inspire children (and parents) to have faith that their dreams will be realized.  Young readers will learn that God has a plan for them filled with wondrous things.  Like Cody, they will also find that through hard times, comes wings, as long as they have faith in God.  

My Review:
This is a beautiful story!  I love the vibrant pictures with bright colors but the message is wonderful.  This is a great book to read to children but at the same time this is a great book to use to cheer someone up or encourage them too!  I loved reading it to my children but as I was reading I was thinking of a person who I think I could use this book as a way to encourage them.  :)  The best thing to remember is God has a plan for each and everyone of us!  What a powerful and awesome message to get to everyone.  :) Remember keep the faith and trust God.  I am so happy to have this book in my library!  :)
