Take babies and toddlers on an active, rhyming journey of a caterpillar growing into a butterfly in this sweet board book.
Caterpillars crunch leaves. They make their own chrysalises. And every day they change until they hatch into beautiful butterflies!
This board book will help children get excited for springtime fun: watching new creatures in the garden, going on nature walks, and watching the seasons' metamorphosis alongside caterpillars'.
Amber Hendricks' short expressive lines with repeated action words make this poem perfect for sharing with babies and toddlers, and Gavin Scott's warm, cozy illustrations encourage all ages to appreciate nature.
For fans of Dear Zoo, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and Barnyard Dance.
"From leafy snacks to snug cocoons to unfurled wings, delicate watercolorlike textures reveal how caterpillars metamorphose before happily taking flight as monarch butterflies. Along with Wildflowers Grow, this series captures quietly remarkable moments in nature in gentle, short rhymes with carefully selected verbs winding through soft, expansive compositions. VERDICT Children are never too young for the fascinating details surrounding the monarch. This is a perfect addition to the natural science shelves." - School Library Journal
