Book Description:

Little Becky does not believe her brother when he tells her that caterpillars turn into butterflies, until her mother confirms that it is true - and then she sees a butterfly start to break out of its cocoon. But what does all this have to do with Easter and the death and resurrection of Christ?

In Doreen Tamminga's engaging tale, the first of more than forty short stories for boys and girls in this book, the connection is made clear. "Sometimes we read to our children just for pleasure, and sometimes we do so to instruct them", says Mrs. Tamminga. "These stories were written with the intent of pointing children to the Lord Jesus as the only Saviour from sin, and to encourage Christian living. I hope they will be a blessing to many young hearts."

The stories in this book are arranged in three groups, for 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12 year olds. A topical index shows where to find stories on particular themes.


Doreen Tamminga lives with her family in Ancaster, Ontario, Canada. She is a teacher by profession, and has taught in Rehoboth Christian School, Copetown, Ontario. Currently she edits Open Windows, a children's magazine for the 4-12 age group. Her stories for children have previously appeared in The Messenger, a publication of the Free Reformed Churches of North America.
