I really enjoyed reading If I Was A Caterpillar by Ben Jackson and Sam Lawrence. The book is very well written and descriptive. The authors have come up with creative things to do if you were a caterpillar. The book is inspirational because it teaches that a normal caterpillar can become a beautiful butterfly. The pictures by Danko Herrera are very well drawn and show each scene clearly. The pictures are also very colorful and beautiful. This book will bring a smile to children's faces. Parents will enjoy reading this book to their child, and children will want to read it again and again. The book is very well developed and thought out. The story is great because it gets children thinking about what they would do if they were a caterpillar. I would definitely recommend this book to all young readers.
