The Nettle and the Butterfly

Daniel C. Bryan

Illustrated by Angela Bryan



If in your garden nettles you find,
Please don’t cut them, please be kind,
For under young leavesof delicate green,
Small clusters of eggs can now be seen.

And so begins the soft and lovely story of the nettle sheltering the eggs that become the caterpiller, then feeding the caterpiller, then sheltering the cocoon as the caterpiller dreams itself into the butterfly who flies away with love and gratitude for its great friend, the nettle. Perfect for the young child, with beautiful paintings illustrating the story throughout.
