If Your Dreams Take Off and Fly by John Butler
'You will see so many things and you will realise why, like you, this world is precious, my little butterfly.'
This is an absolutely gorgeous and very special book that I believe little ears everywhere need to hear at least once in their lives!
This storyline is powerful and reads in a lyrical way - which is so pleasant for reading aloud. Little imaginations running wild and free is quite possibly the best thing in the whole world and this story highlights that wonderfully.
The little person in this story falls asleep and is taken on a wild adventure in the form of a dancing butterfly. The butterfly travels all over delighting in all of the wonderful wildlife along the way.
The ending wraps up so beautifully to make the most perfect bedtime story!
If Your Dreams Take Off and Fly is an all round stunning read that needs to go on every child's wishlist. The illustrations are so subtle and enchanting to get lost in. A real winner!
