A timely tale for Easter Morning

Put hope in their Easter basket

A message only heaven could compose…

A little girl’s cat is on a mission to bring her hope and hopefully, healing.

The ultimate showdown about to begin, would the cat prevail or the butterfly win? Journey into the fields where the white fluff flutters and unexpected alliances form, all to deliver a message to a young girl who needs to hear it most.

Written by a former youth minister, David Faustina tells a story where faith and hope intersect to share with the young reader that no matter the challenge or change in life, that with each new morning the sun must appear.  Each page is beautifully illustrated by French artist, Nicolas Lonprez who breathes life in the trio of characters with a warmth that is sure to capture the attention and wonderment of all readers.

Shine bright and let your wings take flight as your young reader journeys in the dandelion field to find the promise of a butterfly kiss.

Endorsed by one of America's Leading Pediatric Physicians, Dr. Chad Price.

“From my perspective as a physician, this book captures the essence of a child’s amazing ability to accept life as it unfolds.”

Change begins when you purchase a book

It feels good to help others. The lesson beyond the pages.

This story was inspired by a young child close to the author’s heart. The message he wanted to convey was that no matter the circumstance in life, you are beautiful and you are perfect in God’s eyes. Challenges and change are a part of life, but hope is knowing that with each new day the sun must appear. As a former youth minister, Faustina has walked through many situations with families. From news of illness such as cancer, the loss of someone special in the child’s life, to abuse and the healing that must take place, children are faced with a lot of challenge and change. “Families learning to be resiliant in the face of adversity, need to sometimes hear that things are going to get better, maybe not the way we define as better. I have seen families pull through a lot with prayer and determination.” It is with this spirit that Faustina sought out a partner in charity. It was then that Faustina, maybe through divine apportioning, connected with the International Hip Dysplasia Institute. Under the direction of Dr. Charles “Chad” T Price, pediatric surgeon and Medical Director, the Hip Dysplasia Institute has been instrumental in the research, education and prevention of infant dysplasia of the hip. Although DDH (developmental dysplasia of the hip) is not life-threatening, it is life-altering if left untreated. Treatment often carries with it a 3 or more month casting, leaving a young child unable to move from the hips to the toes.

Page after page, this story speaks to the child directly, whether your child is confined by something physical like a cast, or confined by something unseen, like grief, behavior inconsistencies or an altered sense of reality. The message remains, YOU are beautiful and you are loved. Just like the caterpillar did not know they would one day fly, we have the ability to overcome obsticles. This book wil be a great way to begin difficult conversations between parent and child. A flutter of wings, a wag of a tail and the Faith of a girl….a story that uplifts and celebrates life.
