This is just a fun little kids story about growing up and learning to accept yourself.

Sam woke up, and crawled out of her cocoon for the first time ever. She flapped her new wings, and sat there to let them dry. She was very excited to show all of her old caterpillar friends her new wings. Once herwings were dry, she flew over to her best friend Sally's branch. Sally was up, too. Her wings looked dry to Sam. They were very beautiful. The colours of sally's wings were pink, yellow and purple. Sam looked back at her own wings, which were bigger than Sally's, but were tree-coloured. Oh, well. Not everyone has pretty, colourful wings. I'm sure my wings are better looking from back there. Thought Sam. But when they saw their other friends' wings, Sam felt left out as everyone complimented each other. Sam told everyone she had to go home. She cried, while mommy butterfly hugged her, and daddy butterfly made her favourite food, flower pizza. They told her that her wings were beautiful, and looked just like her grandma's. But Sam still thought they weren't pretty.So Sam stayed by herself most of the time as she got older.

When she was older, Sam was flying around the big tree one day in the summer time. suddenly, All the butterflies heard a loud 'CAW!'. It was a crow! All of the butterflies flew around, very fast. They were all scared. Sam's wings blended into the tree, so she told everyone to get behind her, and the crow would not see them. So all of her old friends hid behind Sam's huge wings, and they stayed safe and hidden from the crow. Everybody cheered and thanked Sam. After she saved everybody from the crow, Sam felt good about her wings, and she learned that you should accept yourself, and you will be happy.
