Tea Time with Miss Carol

You’re at home with small children. What do you do? Set up a tea time with Miss Carol of course. Dress up, set the table, pour some tea.

BUTTERFLY DREAMS: A FRIENDSHIP TAKES FLIGHT

WRITTEN AND ILLUSTRATED BY CAROL DABNEY.

ON SALE Spring 2020, 

We all have dreams, but what if they are too big?

 

After Lily-Jane helps her grandmother build a butterfly habitat, a close look at a caterpillar’s spots sends her stumbling in disbelief. “Me llamo Carlos,” says the charming little caterpillar, and an extraordinary friendship is born. But when Carlos becomes trapped in his chrysalis, his dream of wings seems more out of reach than ever before.

As readers discover the tremendous power of encouraging words to nurture a friend past paralyzing self-doubt even when it means letting them go to fulfill their destiny, Carlos learns whether friendship and faith are enough to help him soar on the wings of a dream that may be just the right size.

Enhance your book experience with the original single, “Butterflies and Honey Bees,” composed and sung by Little Rock’s favorite children’s music teacher Carol Dabney.
