Review quote

"A terrific story-hour book. As day turns to night, a caterpillar crunches and munches his way through the tall, tall grass...Besides a treat for eyes and ears, this can be used as an introductory nature lesson."--"Booklist," starred review "Bold, bright, stylized illustrations capture eye and imagination as they convey the simple, rhyming text of this outstanding nature tale."--"School Library Journal," starred review
