A “stunningly illustrated” (Booklist STARRED review) picture book about a curious caterpillar searching for the meaning of the word “beautiful.” But is there just one meaning—or many?
A caterpillar lives a simple life on his leaf until one day, an UnKnown Thing picks him up and calls him beautiful. A question forms in the caterpillar's mind: "What is beautiful?"
So begins a quest to discover the true meaning of the word beautiful. Much to the caterpillar's surprise, each animal in the forest has their own unique definition:
A bear declares that honeycomb is beautiful!
The squirrels say leaves are beautiful!
A mole says his burrow is beautiful!
What's a caterpillar to do?
How Beautiful offers kids an immersive, memorable experience.
