Caterpillar Caterpillar by Vivian French

French, Vivian Caterpillar Caterpillar illustrated by Charlotte Voake, 32 pgs. Candlewick Press, 2009. PICTURE BOOK. $6.99. This picture book talks all about the life cycle of a caterpillar as the little girl follows and watches each step. It is really a story within a story- one is about the little girl, and the other is about the caterpillar. Although it has some really great information about the life cycle of a caterpillar, the font of the informational text makes it really hard to read. The illustrations in this book were great, but I think the font looks too much like it is trying to look like the illustrations, making it hard to read. It would be a good book to have as a resource when talking about the life cycles of insects/caterpillars. EL- OPTIONAL. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
