Ten Little Caterpillars by Bill Martin Jr.
At first glance, this book appears to be a simple counting book. However this book is PACKED with great information. Each page another caterpillar appears but none of the caterpillars are the same KIND! Along the way the different wildlife is identified. Once you get to the end you will find all 10 caterpillars, identified with their name, what they eat, and what they look like as a butterfly. Definitely a book that will be added to our butterfly book collection at school (3rd grade does a butterfly unit at the beginning of the year). Great book for young children working on numbers and counting, as well as older students learning about the life cycle of a caterpillar/butterfly.
