Caterpillar + Butterfly = Winner
on February 27, 2013
My son loves this book, as do I. National Geographic hit a home run on this one.
Not present is National Geographic's habit of digitally adding unnecessary characters to host the book, or their penchant for unnecessary vocabulary ("mojo", for example).
What is present are caterpillars and butterflies. Lots of them. In photos and in text, the book is sure to captivate the interest of children everywhere.
Oh, and two tips for parents whose children request they read this book over and over to the point where you groan when they want you to read the book. First, liven up the book by substituting the word "monster" for "butterfly". This sent my son into gales of laughter one evening. Second, amuse yourself by adding the word "midlife" before the word "chrysalis". The play on words will be entirely lost on your child, and it'll bring a smile to your own face.
Then buy another National Geographic Books and hide the one you've read twenty times in the last month.
