While the gorgeous illustrations alone with capture your child's attention, the storyline has a message for both young and old.
Our little caterpillar friend Cody lives a life in boring brown and longs for something more. He is told by a passing bird and again by a butterfly that his future is colorful, bright, and beautiful he just needs to trust that God has a plan for him and let that plan unfold. Then one day he forms a cocoon and another he struggles to free himself from it only to discover that the struggle has made him beautiful. He then makes it a point to share the promise of God's plan with other caterpillars.
The message here is layered. Trust that God knows what He is doing. Patience is a virtue. Be content. Share the Good News.
It is rare that you come across a book with a science lesson, morality lesson, Bible lesson, great writing and beautiful illustrations. This one has it all. I highly recommend it!
