Book Review: Hermie, A Common Caterpillar
Hermie, A Common Caterpillar
By Max Lucado
Thomas Nelson, 2011
This Max Lucado's Hermie & Friends® best-selling story now available in easy-to-read format!
Hermie and his friend Wormie have always felt common. They don't have stripes or dots, they aren't very strong, and they can't find anything special about themselves. But every time they pray, God tells them that He loves them all the time just as they are and that He isn't finished with them yet. When Hermie becomes a beautiful butterfly, he realizes just how special God's plan is for him!
This classic story has been revised for kids to read and enjoy on their own as a Lever 2 Reader. With fresh new art and a story kids can read themselves, plus a new, low price-this classic story will find a whole new generation of kids who love Hermie and his garden friends!
My son and I read this together on my Nook. I was a teeny bit annoyed that the pictures that went with the narrative were on the next "page". Other than that, it was great.
The story is sweet and I really think my son learned something from it. I've been asking him questions about it and although he wasn't exactly still and attentive when I was reading, he heard all I said.
We've talked about what it means that God is still working on him. We've discussed what it means to be happy with who you are and how God made you.
The words were too hard for my son (who is 5 and reads on 1st grade level) so I did most of the reading, but he's asking for it again so he must have liked it!
