I just read a short and cute book called hope for the flowers.
This is a book that can be read in a single sitting, but I think it has good messages for both children and adults:
Just because others are doing something doesn’t mean that you have to do them too.
What you need to do can be scary but worth it in the end.
Sometimes, it takes some trial and error to figure something out.
It’s perfectly okay to learn from others.
And a handful of phrases stuck out to me while I was reading:
“But the butterfly is already becoming. It just takes time!” – 76
“How could she risk the only life she knew when it seemed so unlikely she could ever be a glorious creature?” – 80
“If I have inside me the stuff to make cocoons – maybe the stuff of butterflies is there too.” – 84
“It only looked good from the bottom.” – 94
And I think these phrases have some wisdom to them.
Things take time.
Again, things can be scary, but the result is beautiful.
Maybe I do have the stuff in me to so said scary thing and reach said beautiful result.
Some things aren’t good from all perspectives.
Like I said before, these lessons are good for both children and adults.
hope for the flowers is an easy read, and for us adults, it takes us back to our childhood days. The lessons are simple enough for young children to understand. But the lessons can also be used as thought starters for us adults.
So if you’re looking for a simple, childlike book that can also get you to thinking, I recommend hope for the flowers.
Until next time!
