Kathryn and her friends love to play pirates and circus at school and she has a wonderful imagination. But when it comes to her most recent assignment at school her mind draws a blank. Kathryn started to get worried and asked her best friend, Maggie the magical butterfly, what she should do. Maggie reminded her that worried thoughts interrupt her creative energy and helped her get back into the flow by breathing slowly and clearing her mind. Maggie became calm and was able to complete her assignment. She told the class how positive thoughts, nice words, and kind actions ripple loving kindness into the world and help others and the planet.
I have not read the first two books in this series. My 4 year old daughter really loved this book. I like how it showed kids that when they start to worry and doubt themselves it really does make things harder. When you can calm down everything is so much easier. It also teaches kids that being kind and loving makes this world a better place. If everybody would be a piece of love in this world everything would be so much better.
