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.
The caterpillar "body" and pop up butterfly are very very strong.
S/he loves the caterpillar spring that winds through the book and the bright illustrations.
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.
This is a picture book about where butterflies come from.
A simple story that shows how nature works, and also offers an opportunity for talking about individuality and self-affirmation.
