Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Caterpillar to Butterfly Big Book is a comprehensive exploration of butterflies, and this oversize edition (18 1/4 by 15 1/4 inches) is perfect for sharing in the classroom. This is a perfect beginner's guide to the mystery of metamorphosis. A caterpillar comes to school in a jar. The class watches the caterpillar each day as it grows and changes. Soon, it disappears into a hard shell called a chrysalis. Then the chrysalis breaks, and a beautiful butterfly flies out of the jar!

Synopsis:

Where did the caterpillar go?

It seems to have disappeared, but it hasn't. It has turned into a butterfly! From the time a caterpillar first hatches, it eats so fast that its skin can't keep up. It sheds its skin several times as it grows bigger and bigger. Eventually it forms a shell around itself called a chrysalis. Nothing seems to happen for a long time. But then one day the chrysalis splits open, and a beautiful butterfly emerges. What a magical metamorphosis!
