    A few months ago, I met a wonderful blogger, Donna, through the SITS girls tribe event. As I got to know Donna, I learned that she is a fabulous children's author. She has been a great friend and sister in Christ. (and after all the trouble she had with malicious code on her blog that came from who-knows-where just as she commented on my blogger blog - I'm so happy she stuck with me in spite of the possibility of cooties!)One day, Donna offered to send me one of her books to share with my boys in return for my honest opinions as a book review. You can just imagine how excited I was. We LOVE books at our house. I wish I had a picture of Buggy reading this book (it's a favorite of his), but alas, the only photo I have happens to be of him reading right after bath time. He didn't feel clothing was necessary.Ok - what do I think of this book?I love it.The Flight of Orville Wright Caterpillar is a sweet story of a little caterpillar who follows his dreams. Even when others tell him repeatedly that he can never fly, Orville still believes and trusts that he will one day fly. The story illustrates to children how God puts dreams in their hearts and how they can ask Christ into their hearts.Orville Wright Caterpillar gives God the glory for the dreams and successes as opposed to so many books that simply say "you can do anything you put your mind to." The illustrations are beautiful. The story is captivating and written so children can understand. Buggy is two and routinely chooses this book as his bed time story.I am looking forward to surprising him with another of Donna Perugini's books in the near future! It was so refreshing to read such a lovely and Christ centered book to my little man!If you are looking for a great book for your little ones, look no further. Head over to [...] to order! You can also check out her blog at [...] to get some free coloring sheets, dvd music with illustrations, and to sneak a peek the books.Seriously - you will love these books!

    This book is great for children and finding their place when it comes to them and God. It tells how unique they are and how special they are to God. There are captivating pictures, and great details to make and youngster delighted. I have read it since I was a little girl and plan on reading it to my children in the future.

    Imagine having a dream - something you've always wanted to do - but it seems so far out of reach. Your friends discourage your idea and call it silly, but still you dream.That's the predicament of Orville Wright Caterpillar. In The Flight of Orville Wright Caterpillar, by Donna Perugini, Orville wants to fly. The problem is, he's way too small to even consider such a feat. But Orville continues to look up and dream of the day when he can fly.His outlook changes one day when he is lovingly picked up by a little girl. As he takes in the amazing view from so high up in her hands, she tells him all about Jesus and God's perfect plan for all of our lives. And in that moment, Orville realizes just how special he really is.Soon, God is calling Orville to do something big, and with his obedience to that still, small voice, Orville's dream is fulfilled.What I love about this little caterpillar's plight is that he reaches his dreams because of God's handiwork in his life. Over the last several years, I've read so many children's books which offered the message that "You can do anything if you put your mind to it." or "You can reach your dreams if you don't give up." But up until now, I've never found one that gives glory to God for making the impossible dream reachable. But Donna does just that in this book. She also weaves in the plan of salvation in simple terms for the smallest of hearts and the book's whimsical illustrations by Nancy Titolo Bishop carry the story along beautifully.I'm always on the look-out for good, wholesome books for the kids, so I was excited to read this one to them. My seven-year-old loved Orville's story and couldn't wait to see what happened next. My three-year-old, who has been especially interested in caterpillars after learning about them this fall, liked the colorful pictures in the book.It's a great book with a great message for the little ones!

    I just ordered more for my grandchildren. Great way to share the gospel with children. Very memorable book! The illustrations are engaging.

    My mom gave me this book when I was young, we read it every night as I pretended to be Orville Wright, looking up and wondering what God created me for. I kept this precious book till a tragic time in my teen years and have thought about that sweet caterpillar many times since. Recently, I searched for this book and found it was coming back in print - GLORY TO GOD! I had to tell everyone! Last year I told my mom about the times I would think about Orville and how the story reminded me to keep dream (God's dream!) during the difficult times - you know, the dream God has put in each one of us to be what He has planned/called us to be. I cannot express in words the impact this book has made on me and hot it can do the same for your child, or any child! You may say I'm silly or just a dreamer, that a book can't do that for you (that's what Orville's friends said!), but the basic Biblical principles helped me through so much in my life. By the way, I am living God's dream! Donna, thank you for all you do and I pray God blesses you abundantly!

    Beautifully illustrated book for children of all ages. Presents the gospel in a simple but profound parable of a caterpillar who dreams to fly being helped--in his quest--to turn into a butterfly. A quote from the book, "God has put a dream in your heart to be what he has planned for you to be."
