The Mixed Up Caterpillar by Annie Kubler


The Mixed Up Caterpillar by Annie Kubler

There's a little mixed up stranger in the forest, who doesn't quite know what he is. Just as he finds out, everything changes and he must adjust to his new identity. Great for discussing identity and belonging.


A beautifully illustrated book full of bold illustrations, which captivated the children the whole way through the story, along with the wiggling caterpillar finger puppet as he appears on each page. The caterpillar starts his journey in a forest, where he doesn't quite know who he is, and feels very mixed up. The children laughed out loud at the humour of the mixed-up caterpillar and were excited to share the book many more times after. A beautifully illustrated book which will be returned to many times and was a firm favourite with the children and staff. -- Sharon Campbell Nursery Education Plus 20090501
