But Charlie puts these fair-weather friends properly in their place in this heartwarming story about the meaning of true friendship.… (more)

This is a good children's book. This book talks about how a caterpillar was not being accepted by the other animals because they thought he was ugly. The caterpillar began to believe that he was ugly. After one of his terrible days he wraps himself in a cocoon and then turn into a beautiful butterfly. He was then being accepted by all of the animals that turned him down before. This book is a good lesson to teach children just because someone looks differently than you; does not mean you can not be their friend. This book also can help children understand the life cycle of a caterpillar. I recommend this book.… (more)

Classic that should be read to all children. I would do sequencing activities (beginning, middle, and end).
