New Children’s Book Helps Kids Face Fears

Miami, FL, November 01, 2008 --( Christian author Linda Wagner announces her first children’s book, Lady Flatterley, published through Outskirts Press. This story takes children through the metaphorical journey of a caterpillar as it evolves into a butterfly. During the process, the caterpillar (Lady Flatterley) faces some of the fears that plague children and adults alike – the fear of failure and the fear of change.

Wagner chooses to use one of “God’s little miracles in nature” – the caterpillar – to illustrate her message in a way that children can readily understand. She wants them to know that even though they may be shy or fearful of change, nothing should stand in the way of their dreams. The fear of failure is often a roadblock preventing people from achieving their goals, and Wagner wants children to learn at an early age to overcome that fear. Change is difficult, but Lady Flatterley gently gives her young audience the message that the effort is worth it.

Lady Flatterley begins her journey of transformation by building a cocoon. This starts a chain of events in her life that will eventually allow her dream of becoming a butterfly to come true – which was God’s plan all along.

Now you have seen
How butterflies are made
Caterpillar to cocoon, then to butterfly
’Tis God’s loving way
