Flutterby the Knitted Butterfly

Posted on February 12th, 2018

Sometimes a new story book really hits home with a catchy story and an important message for children. Flutterby the Knitted Butterfly is one such book. Following on from the Success of Grandma’s Knitted Kingdom, Flutterby follows the tale of a young girls search for her missing butterfly within Grandma’s carefully created knitted kingdom. It is a delightful way to introduce children to the idea of becoming independent in a very safe and comfortable manor.

Independence for kids

As the little girl and her friend Ben the Bee go off on their adventure in the protected magic knitted kingdom in search of the lost Flutterby, it reminds me of children staying here on the farm. Our safe and welcoming hamlet affords children a taste of freedom and adventure on holiday just as the knitted kingdom does in the story. Perhaps this is why I have taken to this gentle tale.  Independence is a journey for both children and parents and finding ways to explore this whether through a holiday or a book is valuable.

Rhyming words and pretty illustrations

As well as a good tale the story is told in a comforting rhyming rhythm by the author while her cousin creates the colourful illustrations to match on each page. I can see this book being read over and over as a bedtime story, the only shame is that it is paperback and not hardback so needs handling with care.
