The Lily Pad and the Dragonfly
Heidi A. Mengis, author
A wonderful story of how a waterbug turns into a beautiful dragonfly. The dragonfly realizes that with his HUGE wings he could fly and discovers new things he never knew existed. He remembers the promise he made his waterbug friends. He walks over to the edge of the lily pad and looks down to see his friends swimming, playing, and having fun. He gets a tear in his eye and wishes that somehow he could go back and tell them what a wonderful thing had happened. He simply looked at them and said "you'll have to wait your turn and then you will understand."
