Ten little caterpillars by Bill Martin Jr. ; illustrated by Lois Ehlert — Bill Martin, Jr's posthumous work, originally published in 1967, brings to life the adventures of 10 caterpillars as they visit flower gardens, vegetable patches, and apple orchards, all before transforming into beautiful butterflies. This rhyming text is fun for all ages, and the beautiful artwork of Lois Ehlert is spectacular.
The weather is getting warmer and children are eager to play outside. Their curiosity often leads them to investigate all the little critters crawling about, and sometimes a bug or two might even make its way home with them. Then what do you do? The Animal Planet Pet Care series has a book Bugs as Pets which tells you how to house and properly care for your new "pet".
