Overview


This rhyming easy-to-read non-fiction science reader covers a favorite nature subject taught in the early childhood curriculum -- the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly.

"Butterflies start as tiny eggs. Out come caterpillars with many legs...."

With catchy rhyming text, author Karen Shapiro gives readers a very simple lesson in the process of metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly. The spare text, paired with illustrator Jean Cassels' vivid realistic art, follows the fascinating process step-by-step. Readers see the caterpillar being born, eating, growing, shedding skin, gradually changing form inside a chrysalis, then emerging as a beautiful butterfly. The last page of the book catalogs the many different kinds of butterflies that appear inside, each of them identified with their correct names.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
There seems to be no end to books about the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a glorious new creature—a butterfly. In a simple text full of facts and good illustrations, this process is clearly explained. Upon the final shedding of its skin, the caterpillar is now in its chrysalis stage. Once it changes, it will emerge as a wet butterfly unable to fly until its wings dry. Then it takes flight to do its job pollinating flowers. That all of this takes place in just eight weeks is amazing. The close-up inset shows that the wing is made up of tiny scales that create the variety of colors. The last page depicts the butterflies seen throughout the book and provides their names. As with others in the series there is an opening note to family members who may be working with the new readers. "Hello Science Reader," Level 2 for kindergarten through grade 2. 2001, Cartwheel/Scholastic,
