|The Green Grass by Lisa Sarver
Two best friends, Butterfly and Dragonfly leave their meadow behind in
search of greener grass. They wonder if the grass could be greener on
the other side of the fence and if they might be happier someplace else.
Along their way, Butterfly and Dragonfly meet Beetle who attempts to lure
them farther away from the truth. They also encounter mother Robin who
offers her wisdom. Butterfly and Dragonfly soon discover that true
happiness comes from within their hearts and that the grass isn’t
always greener on the other side.
