Catterfly is Born, written by Alma Hammond and illustrated by Emily Hercock, is an adorable story of a caterpillar that comes out of her cocoon as a cat with butterfly wings and antennae. Even though Catterfly is very different than the other butterflies, she explains to her friends how she is the same in so many ways and how the fact that she is a cat and a butterfly allows her to help and protect them better. Catterfly tells a story that teaches the life cycle of a butterfly with coloring pages at the end along with some fun facts that kids can learn.

Catterfly is Born is a wonderful educational story with a plot that unfolds as it teaches kids the life cycle of a butterfly and encourages kids to understand that everyone is different. I love the characters in Catterfly and how they are brought to vibrant and colorful life in the illustrations by Emily Hercock. I love how Hammond explained the life cycle of a butterfly in such a creative way and pointed out that differences are what make everyone special and unique individuals in a way that kids can easily understand. I recommend Catterfly to anyone with children ready to learn fundamental lessons in a fun story. Hammond also added bonus pages at the end of the book that show the life cycle of a butterfly, pages for kids to color, and some fun facts that will reinforce what was learned in the previous pages.
