Love this book. This book and the rest of McArthur's "What does a ..." series are great to read to young children and for them to learn to read themselves. Children love the repetition and the anticipation that comes on every page. My grandson can't wait to say No! after each "Does a caterpillar ... ?" He bristles with excitement. The fact that he is learning about nature along the way is a huge bonus. He likes catching small lizards in his dad's garden so is already predisposed to investigating the natural world. A shout out to the illustrator as well; Lucy Rogers has done an amazing job. My favorite illustration is the spider - oh my, he's scary but in a humorous way. All in all, one of the best children's books I've come across in years. Well done!
As a teacher, I adore the beautiful illustrations and wonderful text in this book. It allows kids to engage, participate and learn along the way. Lots of room of inquiry and chat along the way.
As a mother, I love the dedication and purpose behind this book. The cause is a worthy one and each time I read it I will think of two butterflies that have left the world too soon.
Thank you for this book! Look forward to new titles in the future!
