Cut paper and mixed medium illustrations of wooly bear caterpillars we called them wooly worm when I was a child accompany informative text about these fascinating creatures and their life cycle I liked how the author makes the caterpillar s disappearance after weeks of munching seem so mysterious and then proceeds to solve the mystery of where it goes Given the number of predators it might encounter during its lifespan, one wonders how likely it is that it somehow manages to survive The back ma [...]

    5. Some child had this book checked out for a long time and must have received a hefty fine for having it so long because I have had it on reserve from our library for months with no other reserves before me.I completely understand why the child held on this book so long, I feel the child loves moths and caterpillars.The Woolly Bear Caterpillar is a legend in the insect world as well as weather forecasters worlds.While there are many stories about this woolly bear, this story concentrates on the jo [...]

    10. A comprehensive introduction to the woolly bear caterpillar The narrative follows Bella, the caterpillar, through her life cycle until she is an adult Isabella Tiger Moth laying her own eggs I felt that there was a bit of a disconnect between the simple, young child feel of the book and the difficult, vocabulary laden text of the story A good fit for second grade, which studies butterflies and insects as part of a science unit.
