This heartwarming and affirming Level 1 Ready-to-Read Graphics book celebrates the beauty of true friendship!
Worm and Caterpillar are friends—best friends. Worm loves how they are just alike, but Caterpillar has a feeling there is a big change coming. Then Caterpillar disappears for a while and comes back as Butterfly. Will Butterfly and Worm still be friends?
Ready-to-Read Graphics books give readers the perfect introduction to the graphic novel format with easy-to-follow panels, speech bubbles with accessible vocabulary, and sequential storytelling that is spot-on for beginning readers. There’s even a how-to guide for reading graphic novels at the beginning of each book.
"Worm learns along with readers that love is not a surface-level emotion and that true connections bind us deeply to each other. The art is joyful, colorful, and expressive, with emotions reading perfectly on the cartoon insect faces. Overall, it’s a appealing read with a message of acceptance that caregivers will be able to easily apply to real life.
Warm and delightful, this tale will stay with readers long after they turn the last page." KIRKUS: STARRED REVIEW
