“With rhyme, humour, and some keen insight into the human condition, Mike Booth’s caterpillar allows us to contemplate the human experience. The message of hope will delightfully entertain, but, more importantly, will provide a touch point to discuss with younger readers the call of Christ to exchange your earthly citizenship for a heavenly one.”
Tree of Life School
A fuzzy caterpillar is struggling through life in an oppressive dust realm. Within his lowly existence, he forlornly witnesses the airborne freedoms of birds and butterflies, and spends his days wishing he could somehow grow his own wings. But one day when a chance encounter leads him into a conversation with a butterfly, his path to a life of freedom is suddenly cleared.
As the little caterpillar takes the steps toward a renewed life free of tears and woes, he slowly transforms to open his heart to God to receive his blessing and bounty. While embracing all the gifts that accompany metamorphosis, the caterpillar soon discovers that it is God who will help lift him to grace and find the freedom he has always desired.
In this inspirational rhyming story for all ages, an unhappy caterpillar on a quest for change meets a butterfly who helps him realize the power of God’s love in his life.
