The day to day life of a caterpillar can be pretty daunting. The hungry, self-confident, and determined little caterpillar in A Butterfly Without Wings by David M.F. Powers shows us how to overcome tough obstacles and still reach your goal! This clever caterpillar outsmarts the dangerous predators looking to make him a meal, so he can get that delicious green leaf at the top of a big shady tree.

The spirited little caterpillar comes up with a plan and proves that if you believe in yourself, you can accomplish anything. Instead of succumbing to the big brown frog, big blue bird, or the big grey fish (who all eat caterpillars), he presents his argument that he is not a caterpillar, but a butterfly without wings. His confidence and preserverance convinces each of these hungry animals that indeed, he is not a suitable bite to eat.

This is a really cute story that my kids enjoy. It sends a great message and leaves them rooting for the caterpillar. They really loved that he was so creative and is successful in the end! Written with snappy dialogue, the colorful pictures by Natalia Nesterova are lively too and defintiely add to the whole adventure. This is a fun read geared towards early readers (K-3) and you can buy your own copy from Pants On Fire Press! It will quickly become a favorite on the bookshelf!
