Review: Wait Till You See the Butterfly
In this book you will find a collection of short stories (between three and six pages long) for children between the ages of four and 12. They could either be read alone or read aloud by an adult, but given the wide range of subject matter and the topical index at the back they could perhaps best be used to encourage children to think and talk about a particular issue. Subjects covered range from envy to tithing, and there is a strong evangelistic emphasis throughout. British readers should be aware that the book is written by a Canadian, so some of the language and vocabulary might be difficult for a young child to understand.
