The Woolly Bear Caterpillar by Julia Donaldson – Our Review
From Julia Donaldson, much loved author of The Gruffalo, and award-winning illustrator Yuval Zommer, we meet the little Woolly Bear Caterpillar, who is as plain as can be.
As she wanders through the leafy gardens she meets all kinds of other caterpillars who crow of how beautiful they are.
But little do they know that the kind and very plain Woolly Bear Caterpillar will be the most brilliant of them all.
A lovely play on the Ugly Duckling fable, and very apt for children who are perhaps lacking in confidence today.
Totally engaging and with stunning illustrations, this gorgeous picture book also comes complete with a non-fiction mini book written by a nature specialist in the back pages.
