The Butterfly: A Fable
Trafford Publishing, 2006
Now this is a writer!
The only writer who has made me laugh and cry in the same book. It can be slow at times,but trust me, stick with it! I have recommended it to many others who have told me how they laughed out loud and even cried in cafes, getting a whole lot of other people interested in the book. Now I see why so many people are enjoying and talking about what is but a simple tale of a caterpillar searching for ...
Hope for the Flowers
Wonderful present for graduation
I recently discovered this book when searching the internet for an installation service for Christian women. How appropriate...and I am going to use this as a gift to all the friends of my daughter who are graduating from high school this year. It summarizes life, what is the meaning of it? And quickly makes a point that love relationships aren't enough, working hard isn't enough...it all comes ...
Bob and Otto
Robert O. Bruel
Roaring Brook Press
I just finished teaching and read this book on my last day. We talked about how Bob and Otto could be friends even though they're in different places. This poignant piece is appropriate for young children with its repetition and text alignment. It's interesting even for adults with its incredibly deep concept of friendship. I have a lot of books I love...but this is hands down my favorite.
Caterpillars of Eastern North America: A Guide to Identification and Natural History (Princeton Field Guides)
David L. Wagner
Princeton University Press
Here in Texas, it is difficult to find "eastern" guides that can be helpful with our fauna in a relatively complete fashion, but this one certainly does it with style. Even though I have another book for butterfly larvae, I find that the images in this one are more useful and the information more complete, so I often check it first. And when it comes to moths, there simply is no other book that ...
Farfallina & Marcel
A true story of friendship
Farfallina and Marcel is a true story of friendship. It teaches us that even through natural changes in life we can remain friends. This is a favorite story of my 4 year old son who likes to hear it over and over again. The water color pictures are beautiful and add a soft warm feeling to the book. I believe it's message is timeless and we will enjoy reading it to our children for years to come.
Wings of Change
Illumination Arts Publishing Company
Wings of Change teaches an important lesson.
Back when he designed his first school, Frank Hill did all the right things. He talked to the faculty members about their programs and goals. He studied all the literature about the future of education and educational technology. He met with the school board to discuss its vision for the district. Then he integrated his research into a building that was the school of the future, primed and ...
C Is for Construction: Big Trucks and Diggers from A to Z (Caterpillar)
11 reviews, 2003
Must Have if your little one loves Construction
Really informative, well illustrated book. The pictures are pristine! For each letter/truck, just enough information is given to keep your little one's interest. No information overload - which is nice if you have impatient toddlers. I enjoyed this as much as my 3 yr old, and learned new info too =) Highly recommend!
The Caterpillar That Roared: Awakening the Lion Within
Joseph S Sturniolo
Morgan James Publishing
This book is amazing and gratifying! It opened my eyes to the real responsibilites and obligations we have to ourselves and to each other. The lessons are clear-cut. Believing in yourself, when others may not necessarily, and having the resolution and strength to follow through with your own convictions. It is also the understanding that the endeavor to collect material wealth and retiring in ...
Don't Worry Bear
Sweet and thoughtful story
I selected this book for a toddler because of its simple, expressive illustrations that will capture her attention. For slightly older readers, the story line about longing and change is one that will provoke contemplation, but also bring about a sense of reassurance and happiness. Don't Worry Bear, along with the other two Bear books by Foley, will be a special part of your child's library.
The Alphabet Tree
The Alphabet Tree
The Alphabet Tree is a wonderful spring board book to help emergent readers understand the importance of putting letters together to create words. I have used this book as an addition to other ABC books at the beginning of the school year for 1st grade children. They were excited and immediatly suggested ways that they could make words. Our classroom now has our own "Alphabet Tree" that the ...
Patulous, The Different Caterpillar
Working Parents, LLC
SO MANY LESSONS IN SUCH A SMALL BOOK! AMAZING - KIDS WILL LOVE THIS ONE
Every so often I run across a children's book that has so much going for it that it is quite difficult to know where to start. This is one of them! I note that this work has been referred to as another take-off on the "ugly duckling" story, and while that may be so to a certain extent, I hesitate to do so myself. Although that theme does indeed shimmer in the back ground; I found this work to be ...
Inch by Inch
Knopf Books for Young Readers
Lionni has Inched his way to Success
Once upon a time there was a cute, little, green inch worm hanging out on a piece of grass. One day, a robin came up to eat him, but the inch worm talked the robin into letting him measure the robin's tail. Being such a useful worm, the robin did not eat him, but took him to other birds so that they could have something measured by the smart inch worm. Finally, a nightingale told the worm to ...
Caterpillar Chronicle: History of the Greatest Earthmovers
Eric C Orlemann
If its Big and Yellow, its in here!
Once again, Eric Orlemann has come up with the goods. "Caterpillar Chronicle" is a superbly illustrated volume full of wonderful photographs of all kinds of Caterpillar Machinery. A fan of Caterpillar for years, I found it a joy to turn each page in anticipation, to be rewarded with another stunning photograph. From the "Best Steamer" to the massive Caterpillar 797 dump truck, "Caterpillar ...
Eric Carle's Very Little Library
This is a good set. My kids (under 5) already loved the Very Hungry Catepillar and now they won't stop having us read the other two. Each one is unique. The Catepillar book shows everything a caterpillar has eaten, the Spider book lets you feel the fuzzy spider webs, and the firefly book lights up at night. Great fun.

Eve Heidi Bine-Stock
E & E Publishing
A Constant Companion
Eve Heidi Bine-Stock's HOW TO WRITE A CHILDREN'S PICTURE BOOK (VOLUMES I, II and III)is a constant companion and rich resource in the planning and revision of picture books. The deconstruction of picture books, and the detailed classification of crucial characteristics - using classic picture books to illustrate each detailed point - make these books invaluable. Although I particularly use Volume ...
Florida Butterfly Caterpillars and Their Host Plants
MARC C. MINNO
JERRY F. BUTLER
University Press of Florida
Florida Butterfly Caterpillars and their host plants
Excellent book. My back yard garden is devoted to butterfly nectar and host plants and have found this book invaluable when I needed to identify a caterpillar that I had not seen before. Photographs of the caterpillar are opposite a sketch of the Florida peninsula that show the habitat range of that butterfly. Also photographs of host plants, their habitat and the larvae that eat them. This is ...
Pamela Duncan Edwards
My kids and I loved Clara Caterpillar!
This is story about hidden talents, not judging someone by their appearance etc. and it is very clever. I especially liked the fact that the hero in this story is female. I bought this story for my son's 5th birthday, but my 8 year old daughter simply adored this book. After I read it aloud to him a couple of times I saw her pick it up and read it to herself again and then to him when he asked ...
Hermie, a Common Caterpillar: Plush with Lights and Audio
Thomas Nelson Publishers
Very uplifting for children
From the moment my son heard this book read to him, he was hooked. He liked the book so much that we bought the video as well. Now he walks around telling us that God isn't finished with him yet. This is a great book for any family trying to get across that God loves everyone just they way they are and he's always working in our lives. I highly recommend this book to everyone!!!
Ten Wriggly Wiggly Caterpillars
Little Tiger Press
This book is so fun to read! My 9 month old baby boy loves to touch the caterpillars and turn the pages himself. The butterflys at the end of the book are a great surprise for him. Highly recommended!
A very warm celebration.
I saw a copy of BUTTERFLY HOUSE and bought it right away because I was attracted to the love and warmth that the book radiates through its story and illustrations on one of my favorite subjects, the butterfly. Butterfly lovers can look for MALINDA MARTHA MEETS MARIPOSA too, different in that it features the Monarch rather than the Painted Lady and different again in that it offers the ...
