Mommy Bear's favorite game when she was little was chasing butterflies in Bluebell Meadow. Now little bear can't wait to find this magical place for herself! When a butterfly lands on her nose, she sets out to find Bluebell Meadow with the help of her animal friends. Chasing the butterflies and making daisy chains is so much fun she completely forgets the time! "I wish I could stay here forever," she yawns, when a soft voice tells her to wake up. Could it all have been a dream? This endearing life-affirming story about following your dreams and hopes has a magical twist at the end, stunning illustrations and heartwarming characters, perfect for reading at bedtime with a family member or sharing in the classroom. Also includes a set of supporting notes for parents and teachers with questions to encourage discussion of the themes in the book, either at home or in the classroom.
