HASH(0x9b559960) out of 5 stars Helps children internalize the positive 10 Jun. 2010
By Lisa Barker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What I love most about Harry The Happy Caterpillar Grows is that it doesn't speak down to children. In a very open and forthright manner this little story makes change appealing and gives children an expression for their fears and anxieties and possibly an opportunity to talk with the loving adults in their life about changes they face. Either way, it's a great story that will help children internalize the good things about change and feel a whole lot better.

HASH(0x9acc560c) out of 5 stars Written in cheery prose with brightly colored illustrations 18 Aug. 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Harry the Happy Caterpillar Grows: Helping Children Adjust to Change" is a juvenile self-help handbook in the Let's Talk Book series to assist children in adjusting to change. Written in cheery prose with brightly colored illustrations, "Harry the Happy Caterpillar Grows" gradually introduces ideas that will make change easier to accept and integrate for young children. Coping and flexibility, making a list of things that are not changing, focusing on the positive aspects of change, all these suggestions and more are successfully implemented by Harry in his struggle to accept the change coming in his caterpillar life. Children will identify with Harry and learn ways they can work to adjust to changes in their lives too. At the end of "Harry the Happy Caterpillar Grows" there are two lists: One is Tips for Children, and one is Tips for Parents and Guardians; both are very helpful. Also recommended in this series by the same publisher is "Cassandra Gets Her Smile Back: Teaching Children to Care for Their Teeth," by Sherri Alpert, D.D.S., illustrated by Tea Seroya.

HASH(0x9ba9da08) out of 5 stars Clean and simple message for kids 31 Aug. 2010
By C. H. VanLandingham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sometimes you just need a good story for the 3-8 year old. But sometimes you need a book to help them cope with the challenges they face. This book does both. A simple story with nice colorful illustrations of friendly characters makes this an easy bedtime read for children. The extra bonus is the list of tips for coping with change at the end of the story which can help summarize the lessons learned for the child...if you need it. If not, it's just a cute story. One list is for the kids, and one for the adult. A nice addition to the bookshelf, and a book that can be used over and over for different types of challenging kid situations.

HASH(0x9b3401d4) out of 5 stars Great book! 16 July 2010
By Kim S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Harry the Happy Caterpillar Grows: Helping Children Adjust to Change" is wonderfully written and illustrated. It will be a great book for any child, especially those facing big changes in their lives. I work in the adoption field, and could not help but feel this would be a helpful book for children transitioning from foster to adopt families. They will be able to identify with Harry and his anxiety about change, and be encouraged by his beautiful transformation.

HASH(0x9acc5c6c) out of 5 stars Kids will identify with Harry 16 July 2010
By mary ann g - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is such a nice story, combining facts about the butterfly life cycle with a main character kids will identify with. Harry likes his caterpillar life, and changing and flying through the air sounds scary! I bought it for my niece starting kindergarten and it was a big hit. Also includes helpful tips for helping kids deal with change.
