Mummy Bear's favorite game when she was little was chasing butterflies in Bluebell Meadow. Now Little Bear can't wait to find this magical place for herself, but it's time for her nap. When a butterfly lands on her se, she sets out to find Bluebell Meadow with the help of her animal friends. Chasing the butterflies and making daisy chains is so much fun she completely forgets the time! I wish I could stay here forever, she yawns, when a soft voice tells her to wake up. Could it all have been a dream? A gentle story about a little bear and the power of dreams, with a magical twist at the end. Beautifully illustrated, Little Bear and the Butterflies introduces young children to the pleasures of reading and sharing stories. Discussion points for parents and teachers are also included.
