Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This interactive board book may take a little skill on the part of young children. The fuzzy caterpillar can be seen through a plastic cut-out on the cover. This caterpillar is attached to the opening page by Velcro. Once freed, it is on an elastic string that can be pulled through a hole in each page. Readers learn that this caterpillar has eaten his way through a green world and then moves into a blue world and a red world. The refrain on each page is a variation of "Red is good and red is fine, but there must be more to this life of mine." Then the caterpillar moves into a pink world and finally a brown one. There he spins a snug cocoon (a paper one in this case). The finals spread shows his metamorphosis when he turns into a bright, colorful butterfly in a big pop-up spread. The book is teaching about the butterfly's life cycle and also throwing in a lesson about colors along with plenty to discuss on each of the pages. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

    Beautifully illustrated book teaches colors

    This is a wonderful and colorful book that I have never gotten tired of reading to my little one! (I bought it when he was 4 months old, and now he's almost two.) Each page shows the caterpillar experiencing a certain color (beautifully illustrated!), but also wanting "more". After seeing the color, the caterpillar says something like "'green is good and green is fine, but there must be more to this life of mine ', so the caterpillar chomped right through into the next page which was ... blue." This is a board book and very sturdy. Each page has a hole that the stuffed caterpillar slips through to experience every color. At the end, the caterpillar turns into a pop-up butterfly that talks about his world being color-filled (not just one color anymore)...and the caterpillar says: "My life is great, I'm flying high! For now I am a butterfly!"

    This book is a fun way to teach your child about colors, with each colored page beautIfully illustrated. The poetry reads nicely. I still haven't gotten tired of this book. I highly recommend this book!

    Because the caterpillar is a small, stuffed caterpillar and is attached to a string (to pull it from page to page), make sure to keep it out of reach of infants and children younger than 3 when you are not around to supervise.
