What Does A Caterpillar Do? What Does Series is a non-fiction educational picture book for children, grades K-3, written by David McArthur and illustrated by Lucy Rogers. Through a series of questions, the author directs young readers to consider what a caterpillar actually does. He takes them through questions whose answers are fairly obvious to adult readers but may help young readers learn about caterpillars and the other insects they are apt to discover outdoors. And while most will agree that a caterpillar does not “light our way at night” or build webs to capture unwary flies, they will enjoy the question and answer opportunities the author provides as they read along.
David McArthur’s What Does A Caterpillar Do? introduces the marvels of nature in a story that quizzes the reader for their knowledge of what a caterpillar does. I loved the progression of questions and especially appreciated artist Lucy Rogers’ stunning illustrations. Each panel shows an array of insects complete with facial expressions. Her firefly panels are grand, showing a vast pine forest under a star-studded sky and crescent moon, with a lantern-bearing caterpillar and a friendly firefly on one page, and two children chasing fireflies on the following page. Each question sets the reader up for another adventure into the mysteries and marvels of nature. McArthur’s book is perfect for storytime, but it’s especially suitable for a new reader to try on their own. What Does A Caterpillar Do? is most highly recommended.
