Life's Little Lessons is about a caterpillar and his misadventures until he discovers that we can make choices that bring about our own happiness. This is an inspirational story with heart-felt illustrations that children will love to read about and have read to them. A fun, rhyming, and wonderful piece of literature, it is a bonus companion guide for parents and teachers filled with insights and ideas on how to use the story to prepare children (ages 2-8) to discover language and thinking skills.
