Caterpillar's Surprise is a fun story with positive messages about change and body images as well as environmental literacy concepts about camouflage and metamorphosis. I loved Tadpoles rhyming songs and body positivity. Caterpillar and Tadpole have a wonderful and encouraging friendship. The changes in both animals are shown through beautifully drawn cute but realistic illustrations. The baby pictures that the animals brought to the Masquerade were a wonderful way to highlight additional changes within the animal kingdom. Overall, a good book for introducing environmental concepts for children ages 2-6.
