My book review of 'The woolly bear caterpillar' by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Yuval Zommer
The woolly bear caterpillar
Something a little different from the bestselling author of 'The Gruffalo', working with a new illustrator too.
The brown, woolly caterpillar is crawling through the garden wondering about her future. What type of moth will she become?
The other caterpillars look much brighter and more colourful, but they're harsh and dismissive of Woolly Bear, making fun of her, sure of their superiority.
When the day comes for the caterpillars to shed their skin, though, there are some surprises in store.
This picture book comes with a non-fiction mini book all about moths and caterpillars, written by a nature specialist. It is aimed at children aged three years upwards.
