A Review of The Giving Meadow



The Giving Meadow

Written by Stephanie Burkhart
Illustrated by Stephen Macquignon

Softcover book for ages 3-7

Published by 4RV Publishing

ISBN-13: 978-0-9825886-9-7



The Giving Meadow is a wonderful story of a caterpillar and his journey through the grassy meadow. The journey begins as soon as the caterpillar hatches from an egg and ends when he finally becomes a beautiful butterfly.  While on this special journey, the caterpillar meets several helpful friends who share their food with him.

The Giving Meadow is a story about friendship, sharing, and kindness that young children will want to hear again and again.  Children will easily relate to the caterpillar and his feelings of being hungry, thirsty, and even being tired.  The colorful illustrations complete this wonderful book.
