Ten Little Caterpillars

by Bill Martin, Jr.
Illustrated by Lois Ehlert

Published by Beach Lane, 2011
32 pages
ISBN: trade 978𢴒424-33854

Ages 18 months to 4 years

Ten little caterpillars make their way through the world as enumerated in this simple story. One wriggles up a flower, another climbs a cabbage head, and yet another is taken off to school inside a jar. The last in the series achieves its goal after it 搒caled an apple tree / and hung there patiently / until by and by, the tenth little caterpillar / became a butterfly. Ehlert抯 trademark vibrant watercolor collage illustrations meticulously document each insect抯 activity, and in five concluding pages identifies the ten types of caterpillar and what each eats, and shows all in both larval and butterfly forms.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
