This beautiful picture book by Roger Vaughan Carr and award-winning Ann James portrays the theory of the butterfly effect in a simple yet informative way.

Malani likes to play in the forest. One day she sees a beautiful butterfly and thinks about how fragile and ineffective it is compared to her father's elephant. But when the butterfly is startled, it creates a tiny puff of air that joins other winds, gaining strength and travelling across the world. When it returns, it has become something so powerful that it makes even the mighty elephant tremble.
