About "What Color is a Butterfly?"

Over-compensating for the lack of sight, this child learned to cook, thread her own needle, sew, cook, play the piano and the pipe organ professionally (anything with a melody), light a gas stove with a match, set and start a coal stove, crochet, knit and tat, and raise a family.  She smelled her way through the spices for a good cake and made muffins and bread as tasty as the baker at your favorite bakery.  She didn’t see with her eyes but with her fingers, her ears, nose and if all else failed, her taste buds.  This wonderful story will make everyone appreciate more fully their own gifts and ablities.
