" Charlie wants a friend, but no one wants to play with him because he's an ugly caterpillar. Of course, the inevitable happens- and Charlie stays true to himself. It is a good discussion-starter book for young children, and remains one of my kids' favorites. " Sarah said.
" I think the pictures are precious!! What a cute story.I love that it's about the value of real friends and making kids aware that if someone likes you just because of how you look or because of the things you have that they are not really good friends. I think that our culture is to wraped up looking perfect or having all the IT items. " Katt said.
" I liked the story. It teaches children how much bullying hurts and that you shouldn't judge a person based on how he or she looks. I also liked that there was a caterpillar named Katie who was being bullied. I related to her so much. This book would be a good read-aloud for any grade on the topic of bullying. " Katie Nanney said.
