From My Bookshelf to Yours: Caterpillars in the Kitchen

This is a very sweet and engaging true story about a young girl named Pip (Jennifer Houghton) who loves bugs. She especially likes the Emperor Gum Moth caterpillar. She makes a mistake and then has to scramble to fix it.
This is a story younger children will love and want to read again. My four year old especially loved the end where she learned about the life cycle of the Emperor Gum Moth. My children also picked up on some words that were different than what they were used to hearing and it gave me the opportunity to talk to them about Australia.
"Caterpillars in the Kitchen" is beautifully and authentically illustrated.  Your child will love studying each picture.

It is available by mail order within Australia from:
