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.
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! :)
