A little caterpillar crawls along a plant stem looking for its lunch. It finds a tender leaf which it happily munches on. After its meal it decides that the spot it is in is just perfect for its needs and it sets about spinning a cocoon for itself into which it settles, nice and “snug.”
This book introduces and helps the young reader practice short “u” sounds. A simple yet engaging text is well complimented by warm and soft illustrations beautifully rendered to show the amusing personality of the caterpillar and the loveliness of the Monarch butterfly that it turns into.
A section at the back of the book provides the reader with additional information about butterflies. There are also directions on how to make a Life Cycle Mobile.
