The power of words is that a life can be launched with as little as a single phrase, an uplifting word or an act of kindness. Our words are often the very things that help create future dreams. And sometimes those dreams are beyond our wildest imagination.
Think of the power we wield, and the impact we can make if we become more intentional about encouraging our children through stories that are empowering, imaginative and broaden their perspectives.
Caterpillar Wings envisions inspiring young children to dream big through various modes of creative expressions such as digital, print, video and art. We are a story-telling platform for parents and children to create fictional as well as non-fictional content and establish a fan base through engaging and inspirational stories, artworks, videos, biographies and more.
