Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
Late one afternoon, a little bear discovers a caterpillar hard at work spinning a cocoon. "What are you doing?" asked Bear. "I am making a cocoon," said Caterpillar. "I'll stay inside for a while. But I promise you will see me again." Bear worries about the caterpillar, and he comes back many times (in both rain and shine) to check on how his friend is doing. Bear comes at night, on a windy day, on a rainy day, and even in the middle of a snowstorm. Each time, Caterpillar tells Bear not to worry, and at one point Caterpillar sleeps quietly in his cocoon. Then one day, Bear returns and discovers an empty cocoon lying on the ground. Where is Caterpillar? Has something terrible happened to him? Moments later, a beautiful silk moth flutters by, and Bear discovers it is his friend. In this gently-crafted story, children will enjoy discovering the life cycle of nature while connecting with memorable characters. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1- Foley's delightful Bear is back, and he's concerned about Caterpillar, who is about to disappear inside his cocoon. Even though he promises Bear will see him again, the cub begins to worry. In the dead of night, in wind, rain, and cold, he ventures out to check on his friend. Only Mouse's reassurance that Caterpillar is simply sleeping lifts Bear's spirits-until he discovers an empty cocoon on the ground. "I'm afraid I'll never see him again," Bear moans. Alert readers who notice the creature flying above him, however, know that Bear has nothing to worry about. A page turn proves them right. The uncluttered illustrations, all spreads, and the large, spare text have pastel backgrounds. With a few strokes, Foley depicts Bear's ever-changing moods: from amusement to pondering, worry, dejection, and, finally, exuberance. The yellow background behind Bear when he first encounters Caterpillar is echoed in the final scene as he throws his arms wide in exhilaration at discovering his pal once again, in his new form. From the inviting cover showing the two friends engaged in conversation to their reunion, youngsters will welcome this charming story with open arms as well. Dina Drits's Silkworm Moths (Lerner, 2001) can help them learn more about Caterpillar's wonderful transformation.-Marianne Saccardi, formerly at Norwalk Community College, CT
