It really is a fantastic book, not only does it explain the life cycle of a butterfly it also is useful for a lesson about the days of the week and healthy eating.
Children love relating to the caterpillar who eats too many treats and ends up with a belly ache before eating one more healthy leaf and spinning a chrysalis. Bob and Otto by Robert O. Bruel is a lovely story about 2 friends who must part ways , in this case because one is a caterpillar who needs to build a chrysalis and the other an earthworm who needs to dig deep into the ground.
I like the lesson about how we all play a part! The Crunching Munching Caterpillar by Sheridan Cain is another story about a caterpillar who is not happy with his lot in life.

There is a fair bit of language that some parents would object to. This caterpillar is often reminded that he is too fat to fly- so that poses a few challenges to parents like myself who are trying to instill healthy body images as well as using respectful words with others in our children.

Reading non-fiction with your preschoolers is important as it teaches them seamlessly that writing and reading are not just for stories but for information too. I love the simple text and engaging story about a little girl who is trying to find the butterfly that she saw the day before. In her attempts, she finds many other colorful bugs in her garden.
At the end of the book is a beautiful pop-up butterfly that will delight your little readers.
