Grade 7 UpAThe ageless, timeless story of caterpillars, Strip and Yellow, unfolds as the author, Trina Paulus, reads it with as much enthusiasm as she had when it was originally published 25 years ago. It is a very simple story of life, death, goals, alternatives, anxiety, hope, and becoming which can be used by students on many levels, with each person gleaning an appropriate moral. Paulus' speech is gentle, and her belief in the story is shown in her very expressive voice. She enunciates very clearly, has good pacing, and changes tone and speech for the different characters. Short, pleasant musical interludes provide appropriate breaks between each chapter and set the mood for upcoming events. On Side 2 Paulus discusses the background for the story from the events in her life and the importance of various symbols used in the plot. Purchase for anyone who has challenges to overcomeAthis story could have as much of an audience as Jonathan Livingston Seagull.

I have been a big believer of this quote and have tried to transform my life to be my ideal being for a while yet couldn't, deciding purchase and read the whole book to get better insight. What I realized after reading the book was, to become a butterfly, the caterpillar must patiently go through one more stage in between, "pupa.." Also, to become a butterfly, the caterpillar should not try to achieve higher, richer, etc, but rather let go of its self, "dying" and transform to new self by let go of current self. Now I am more patient and enjoying the pupa stage; knowing that one day I could be a butterfly way I always dreamed of. I recommend this "food of thought" book to anyone but especially who are frustrated and tired try to be survive in such a competitive "caterpillar" society.
PS They should not put it in Christian Inspiration - it's inspiring for all.
