20. “The Crunching Munching Caterpillar” by Sheridan Cain


Although bugs do not belong to the most charming creatures, they surely can be intriguing for little boys and girls. Kids somehow love them! No wonder that those nasty worms and spiders make the cutest book characters.

In this story, a caterpillar dreamed about flying. Unfortunately,  as a bird and a bumblebee noticed, he had legs and legs are for walking.  The poor caterpillar would have probably given up on his dream if not for one wise butterfly: “Who knows? Perhaps one day you will fly…” The caterpillar waited and his dream came true.

” The Crunching Munching Caterpillar” is one of those books that make you smile. It somehow releases only positive emotions and immense energy. You just want to set out to follow your dreams. Immediately. We can be what and who we want to be. We just need to have faith, patience and perseverance. And we have to surround ourselves with the right people. Those who gave up on their dreams will most likely talk you out of your pursuit of happiness.

I don’t know if Sheridan Cain approves of my interpretation but this is what I am gathering from her story and what I am conveying to my son. By the way, we love the pictures too, Jack Tickle, and have fun looking at different shapes of leaves after the caterpillar munched through them.
