The community of friends can't play at the pond because of the bully named Milton the Frog. Clover the Rabbit calls on the help of Mrs. Ladybug, “Dot” as she is known to her friends, and they seek the wisdom of Solomon the Snail to deal with the problem how to help Milton see that he is being mean. Only someone who is both able to fly over the water to him and brave enough to face him can do it. In the whole neighborhood near the pond there is only one who measures up, only one who can bring the news of the Mighty Wondrous Voice of Love to the bully who is terrorizing everyone - the tiny little Ladybug called Dot. But she will be all by herself! Or will she? Don’t forget – the Mighty Wondrous Voice of Love is with her!


Meet a snail called Solomon. Keep him company as he goes along. Lean in close and listen… For as he travels he sings his song.. Love is Patient, Love is Kind. Hear his voice and pay it Mind.

“Thank you for your beautiful book of wisdom…and love…unconditional…[that] the world really needs…because God is within us. That Mighty Wondrous Voice of Love!!!”
