We found a monarch butterfly caterpillar today and we want to raise it to a butterfly, J is absolutely thrilled. Does anyone have any good stories for kindergarten-age children (fiction or non-fiction) about caterpillars/butterflies?

Don't need any Eric Carle we already have most of his books...

Here is one that we like that is available on PBS From Caterpillar to Butterfly (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science, Stage 1)

 

This entire series is really great!

My, Oh My--A Butterfly!: All About Butterflies (Cat in the Hat's Learning Library) by Tish Rabe and Aristides Ruiz is a good one too.

I don't know about books, but we are planning to do this soon. I have everything printed out already. I just need to remember to buy the envelopes to mail them in.
