The Giving Meadow, by Stephanie Burkhart

Stephanie Burkhart's new children's book, The Giving Meadow, tells the tale of a little catepillar and his journey to becoming a butterfly.

Newly hatched from his egg, the catepillar travels through the fields of the Giving Meadow, in search of water and food. He meets a few friends along the way, a frog, a ladybug, bees, and snake, who share with him and help him along through the meadow.

The colorful illustrations from Stephen Macquignon allow the reader to take the trip in vivid color.

The Giving Meadow was a cute story with a bit of a lesson on how we all need a little help from our friends.

But don't take my word for it, here are a few insights from the Little People in my house who had a look at the book.




"I like the animals, the catepillar, the frog, and the butterfly and lady bug."

"I liked the whole story."

My grandchildren liked it well enough they wanted to read it twice.  What more recommendation do you need?

The Giving Meadow was written for children 2-7, but parents and grandparents alike, will probably enjoy it too.

The Giving Meadow is available through Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble
