5.0 / 7.0

This book is a great introduction to caterpillars and butterflies and polliwogs and frogs and the magical idea that something can morph into something else. The illustrations are dated in a fun way, and the overall design of the book is unique and engaging. The text on each page is simple and brief enough for it to be a hit with the toddler and pre-schooler crowd!
