The Butterfly Learns About The Kindness Of Others

by Gabriella, age 6

Once upon a time, there was a little butterfly. The butterfly was orange and blue. The butterfly had a big surprise one day. A little boy came along and thought she was just a leaf, and he stood on one of her wings. The butterfly tried to get home but she couldn’t. Her wing hurt and she couldn’t fly. A worm had built a cave home in the ground and he let her stay there. He made her a blanket out of soil to keep her warm. She was there, nursing her wounded wing, for eight days. Then a caterpillar came by. The caterpillar was really clever. He put the butterfly on his back and took her home. The next day, there was a very big surprise; her wing was better! She was so happy that she flew all the way to space and back again.
