The Gift of Time
Buttercup is a quirky caterpillar that is in no hurry to become a butterfly. Her wish for time to learn, to discover, and to play is granted by star fairies who love her earnest heart. Buttercup chooses a path of discovery that is different from the other caterpillars. With love and guidance from the star fairies, Buttercup transforms into a beautiful butterfly and joins her friends.
