9780060289959: Clara Caterpillar

Clara is a cute cabbage Caterpillar. But to Catisha, who is catty and crimson, Clara is only a common caterpillar with no hope of becoming a colorful butterfly. Sure enough, Clara comes out cream colored. And during an encounter with a hungry crow, Clara proves that being colorful and conspicuous doesn't compare with being common, content, and courageous.

Pamela Duncan Edwards and Henry Cole's comic and compelling alliterative collaboration is captivating!

From Booklist:

Ages 4-6. Clara's story begins when her mother lays her egg and flies off calling, "Grow up to be courageous and contented, Clara." And so she does, though it's not always easy. From the day she hatches, Clara is accompanied by a host of other caterpillars, including the disdainful Catisha, who knows that someday she'll turn into a beautiful crimson butterfly. When she does, she attracts the eye of a hungry crow and is almost eaten. Clara, now a humble cabbage butterfly, diverts the crow's attention and then hides, camouflaged among the camellias. Children will enjoy the well-told, if predictable story and Cole's large-scale, child-friendly artwork. Teachers will probably be even more enthusiastic, since this provides a solid story for a butterfly unit as well as a celebration of the letter C (just as Edwards and Cole's 1999 book Worrywarts provided plenty of practice with W). Teachers needing a book for C week will enjoy reading aloud such alliterative passages as, "'That's curious,' complained the crestfallen crow." Carolyn Phelan
