Meet Bug, a small, wiggly caterpillar. Follow along as Bug transforms into a butterfly in this beautifully illustrated board book for the very young.

From leaves and lily pads to grassy meadows and apples, hungry little Bug munches and crunches through everything it can find before entering into its chrysalis for a big change . . . In a fun, informative board book that explores the life cycle of a caterpillar, readers can follow along with every stage of Bug’s transformation into a beautiful butterfly. A die-cut throughout the book emphasizes how nature is full of changes—and how you can always tell when a hungry caterpillar has been around!
