Loretta's Caterpillar (Loretta's Insects #4)Loretta’s Caterpillar by Lois Wickstrom
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loretta’s Caterpillar was a cute story of how caterpillars become beautiful butterflies. Loretta woke up to no more butterflies flying around her garden and she got quite upset. When she went to investigate, she saw many little eggs on leaves. She started to look after one of them that she considered her pet. She saw the egg hatch, as a caterpillar, change colors, build a chrysalis, and become a beautiful butterfly. The author always takes Loretta on an adventure teaching the reader along the way about nature. Even as an adult I learned that caterpillars always eat their shedded skin and if the butterfly has black dots that indicates it’s a boy! The author always provided a summary at the end about the subject which is a great teaching moment.
