Hope for the Flowers (Mahwah, NJ: Paulist Press, 1972)

Here’s a classic from over forty years ago, filled with a kind of hippiefied idealism and lots of love. Catholic author Trina Paulus tells a charming story for children (of all ages) about two caterpillars, “Stripe” and “Yellow” and their adventures culminating in their transformation into lovely butterflies, bringing hope for the flowers. The Christian message is hard to miss, but this book is written in a way that anyone can enjoy it.

Be sure to check out my interview with Trina Paulus from 1997.
