Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- For young children, there's no better way to introduce the world of science than through one of nature's miracles, and it is difficult to find a better example than in this wondrous story of birth and transformation. ``Imagine you are someone small. . .'' So begins the readers' journey as a tiny caterpillar embarking on one of life's odysseys. The story goes through the stages of growth as the egg evolves from birth to the glorious moment when the butterfly takes wing. Through the personalized adventure and Ryder's strong sensory imagery, readers become the tiny creature, growing and changing. As a wonderful postscript, Ryder gives directions for adapting a part of a garden to attract butterflies. The book is packed with good information presented in an imaginative way. Cherry's illustrations span the full page, using boxes in sequence to magnify details or follow action. Another special feature of her lush watercolors is the many small creatures hidden among the plant life, inviting readers to sharpen their powers of observation. As it opens children's eyes to one of the wonders of nature, this book is sure to delight as well as teach. --Virginia E. Jeschelnig, Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library, Willowick, OH
