Metamorphosis brings astonishing and exciting changes to a pair of caterpillar friends, who take pride in being the same--and different.
Two caterpillar friends love what they have in common--lots of legs and a talent for chewing leaves into funny shapes. And when it's time to build cocoons, they hang theirs side by side. "Happy metamorphosis," says an older, more knowledgeable butterfly. And it is a happy metamorphosis indeed--for when the two emerge from their cocoons, they can fly! But so much else has changed--as one is now a moth, who flies by night, and the other is a butterfly, who flies by day. How will things work now? Fortunately some things never change--like true friends figuring out a way to be together, and happily flying into the sunset and sunrise.
Praise for Moth and Butterfly Ta-Da!:
“Whimsical, silly illustrations use bold colors to make this garden paradise really pop. The fast-paced story uses minimal text and a light-hearted narrative to capture the attention of preschoolers. . . . Lessons about the natural world and friendship in the face of differences flourish.”—School Library Journal
“The seemingly simple story cleverly gets some key characteristics (and the concept of metamorphosis) across while reassuring young readers that burgeoning differences don’t have to doom a relationship. The splashy illustrations are animated and amusing, capturing caterpillar expressions and moth movements in colorful detail. It’s a sweet and snazzy celebration of the natural world and the bonds of friendship.”—Booklist
