SummaryAdd a Summary
This book shows the life cycle of the caterpillar from egg to butterfly. It also teaches numbers and counting with all of the foods that the caterpillar eats in the middle of the story.
The journey of life so cleverly use in the metamorphoses process a caterpillar takes. Great color Illustrations. I know this is a story I remember from reading to my children now 40 years later I am reading it to my granddaughter and she just loved it with all kind of question and a nature walk to go with it.
