The big, vibrant, colorful illustrations make this picture book something special and one that small children will enjoy looking at. A number of little caterpillars crawl over a variety of large flowers, leaves and veggies. Other creatures like spiders, ladybugs, birds and even a large fish, are included in the various scenes.

The text is fairly simple and the author does provide the names of all the foliage, flowers and other critters as well as a limited narrative. Then, at the end of the book, you’ll find ten caterpillars, such as the mourning cloak and cabbage looper, along with an illustration of the moth or butterfly they change into. This illustrated guide also includes a little information on what each caterpillar likes to munch upon.

Not only is this a very eye appealing book, but it also serves as the ideal introduction to caterpillars and the transformation they undergo to become moths or butterflies.
