Summary: This is the story of the evolution of a caterpillar from egg to butterfly. A good book for sharing with toddlers when you want to teach them about counting, caterpillars, and identification of objects, especially food.
Type of Reading: family reading, playtime reading, anytime reading, read aloud book, learning to read
Recommended Age: read together: 0 to 4; read yourself: 6 to 8
Interest Level: 0 to 6
Age of Child: started reading at 1 year
Young Reader Reaction: Even with months of continual reading, it still entertains & teaches, particularly as counting & identification become relevant. This is always among the first to be picked. Often, she goes into her room and brings it to a parent to read.
Adult Reader Reaction: The pictures are bright and attention-grabbing. As the caterpillar eats through the various fruit, the pages get larger and are easy for the toddler to turn. Finding the caterpillar on each page becomes a game as well.
Pros: Simple story that evolves with toddler’s learning curve. We like the engaging yet simple pictures to grab attention, easy to turn pages.
