“Hermie, a Common Caterpillar” by Max Lucado
“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 Thoughts-
My kids LOVE Hermie movies and one of their favorites is the common caterpillar. When I had the chance to review the book I jumped on it.
I reviewed the Kindle version so it wasn’t in color but my kids didn’t care. They wanted me to read it again and again.
I love the story. It teaches kids(and adults) that it’s ok to be you and that God has plans for each of us. Hermie and his friend Wormie think they aren’t special. Everyone around them seems to have special talents. The ant is super strong, the snail carries his house around and the ladybug has beautiful spots. God assures Hermie & Wormie that He has great plans for them. Hermie gets very tired and when he wakes up he’s a beautiful butterfly. He then realizes God did have a plan for them and that God never forgot about the,.
Awesome book. Lee, who is 5 liked trying to read the book too. I know by the end of the year she’ll be able to read it all by herself.
