My own children presented mixed theories. The discussion it invoked was both surprising and a welcome insight into their thought processes. The style is a blend of softly Little Butterfly - Christer Alsén - Little Butterfly charcoal and a sort of smudged colored pencil feel—utilizing grays, oranges, and blues exclusively but with a charming and distinct effect.

The messages inside the story Little Butterfly - Christer Alsén - Little Butterfly powerful and good for any age to understand.

For young learners, the author provides a helpful note at the end of the story that explains a bit more about the scientific details of butterflies and their life cycles.
