About the Book

Rose, a caterpillar, lives on a cliff high above a sunflower field. She loves this place because it is bright and warm. One day, she meets a new friend named Sunny, a spider who creates beautiful webs. As the new friends explore together, Rose learns Sunny does not like flying bugs.

After Rose wakes up from a long nap, she realizes that she has transformed into a butterfly. Although blessed with wings, her initial excitement turns to concern when she remembers her friend is not comfortable with flying insects. At first, she hides her wings. But the urge to fly and explore becomes too strong.

Through Rose’s story, this picture book for children shares the message that you are brave enough to untie your wings, even as you are falling.
