Bored with hanging around on a branch, munching leaves, a little caterpillar has a big dream of a wonderful future of flying and twirling in the sun and enjoying nectar from beautiful flowers.

But which inner voice should he listen to? The kind voice that encourages him to believe in his dreams, or the mean one that warns him against change and tells him to give up on a brighter future?

This little caterpillar’s inspirational story of transformation is everyone’s story. We all have to decide which inner voice to listen to whenever we prepare to leave our comfort zone, spread our wings, and fly.

And like the little caterpillar, we make a brighter future for ourselves when we choose to listen to the kind supportive voice instead of the mean dismissive one.

Lynne Harley’s life work, spanning forty years as a social worker and transformational life coach, has been to empower individuals to believe in themselves and to give credence to the still, small voice of truth that is within all of us. In What If You Could?, Lynne seeks to plant these seeds into the minds of young children, but the message is a universal one that will be embraced by readers of all ages.

Praise for What If You Could?

This endearing children’s story, What If You Could?, tells the tale of a “thinking” caterpillar who has a dream, and his metamorphosis into a butterfly. Readers of all ages will relate to the voices that speak to the caterpillar as he desires more, dreams big, and is getting ready to leave behind what has been familiar. This book provides parents and educators with valuable teachings and tools. Learning to listen to, and trust the internal voice that is kind and loving, our voice of intuition; and the power of believing and living into one’s dreams. Lynne Harley shares her gifts in the world as a Transformational Life Coach and Speaker, and now with this beautifully inspired children’s book, a tale of transformation for all.” – Mary Morrissey, founder of the Brave Thinking Institute, Internationally best-selling author of No Less Than Greatness and Building Your Field of Dreams, which became a PBS special

What If You Could? Is a wonderful book for children, introducing them to the magic of dreaming big by re-telling, in a very sweet way, the oft-told story of the caterpillar becoming a butterfly. The youngest among us can learn the oldest of lessons through this time-honoured tale that can bring new awareness to a new generation when shared with the easy-to-understand, yet imaginative approach found here. This is a tale sure to generate questions, and open the door for every loving parent’s answer, about how the spiritual power of Belief works. – Neale Donald Walsch, internationally bestselling author of the book series Conversations With God, spiritual teacher, and founder of The Re-Creation Foundation.

“How are you today? I mean, how are you really? Are you content? Sad? Anxious? Happy? Do you have a headache? Upset stomach? Sore back, aching knees? Which of those maladies are you most comfortable addressing? Probably the physical ones, right? You’re not alone. Mental health is not something everyone is comfortable talking about.”
