From the award-winning best selling writer of Bart’s Escape Out the Gate, David’s Christmas Wish and Arnold, the Cute Little Pig with Personality, this 5-star Reader’s Favorite and Mom’s Choice Award-Winning book, Wings and Feet is a sweet story about a very rare friendship. A child and butterfly discover each other’s differences while learning how these differences complement their friendship. The child can run through the meadows while the butterfly flies from up above. Yet they both love to play in the meadow for hours.
When my wings get tired, I can land for a rest.
If your feet get tired, you’ll sit; that is best.
They’re different that way, my wings and your feet,
but we are still friends and our friendship runs deep.
The child loves the butterfly so much that he wants to keep the butterfly in a jar to keep him safe. However, the butterfly has to set boundaries with the boy by explaining that his freedom is the best way to stay safe. With their differences revealed out in the open, the unlikely two are able to create a lasting friendship for today’s generation and those to come.
