CATERPILLAR SPRING, BUTTERFLY SUMMER

Author: Susan Hood

Illustrator: Claudine Gevry

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Reader's Digest Children's Books, ©2003

Material: board book

Summary: A caterpillar makes friends with other insects, but is disappointed when they all fly away. After the caterpillar goes to sleep in its cocoon, he emerges as a beautiful butterfly, able to fly with his friends. The caterpillar's transformation into a butterfly is enhanced by a "body" (a colorful, fabric-covered spring) that winds through the book. This is a picture book about where butterflies come from.

Type of Reading: any time

Recommended Age: 1 to 5

Age of Child: Started reading with a two-year-old child.

Young Reader Reaction: S/he loves the caterpillar spring that winds through the book and the bright illustrations.

Adult Reader Reaction: This is a very engaging book with a subtle message that although we all develop differently we are individual and beautiful. Like The Very Hungry Caterpillar (a frequent request), this was an instant hit, too.

Pros: The caterpillar "body" and pop up butterfly are very very strong.

Cons: none

Borrow or Buy: Buy. This is a strong book with a sweet story and bright illustrations that toddlers return to.
