Caitie the Caterpillar
Jennifer Gladen has written a cute book for kids.
There are lots of books about caterpillars turning into butterflies, and I’ve even seen some with similar titles like Katy the Caterpillar and Catie the Caterpillar.
But this book is different. It’s not just about metamorphosis.
Caitie and her friend, Alexander Ant, have to keep finding ways to escape from Swift Sparrow, who wants to eat them so the book is an exciting adventure.
The artist, Eugene Ruble, does a good job of showing the story.
The scientific information at the end of the book will be interesting to kids, too.
