THE MELODIES IN MOTION
Social and Emotional Tools:
Using Imagination, Building Confidence, Self-Esteem
Use your imagination. Can you be a butterfly?
Spirits store in this slow moving almost lullaby song
that lulls children into a rhythmic state
of fantasy and creativity. Strengthening the imagination muscles
with the power of visual, audio, and material images,
Can You Be a Butterfly helps children's mind body and spirit soar.
Imagine it First!

We use our imagination when we close our eyes and we think or see things in our mind's eye. If we are scared or think we can't do something, we can use our imagination to help us "Imagine it First!" That's the Melody MOTTO for the Butterfly song!
