Maggi Li is back again with another life cycle book just in time or Spring. This time a hungry caterpillar is featured. It has a few more adventures than the typical caterpillar probably experiences but in line with Eric Carle’s classic tale of a hungry caterpillar, it eats its days away until it is ready to go into a chrysalis and emerge a beautiful butterfly. I like that it includes the word chrysalis and it has illustrations that are engaging. I was hoping the book would mention that the caterpillar stays close to where it hatches and usually only eats specific types of plants. This was a bit more fictional in that it travels with a bird high in the sky on an apple. However, I will likely include this book with other books for our unit on spring and butterflies that I will be using with preschoolers.
