)-- Even small children know that caterpillars turn into butterflies, but what happens when the caterpillar is insecure and feels incomplete? A new children’s book released by Dog Ear Publishing explores what happens when a sweet caterpillar transforms into a butterfly and learns an important lesson.
Charlie is a sweet caterpillar who wishes he was bigger when he looks at himself in the mirror. Even though everyone thinks he is smart and nice, it’s what Charlie is thinking that causes problems. Once he spins his cocoon, anything is possible. Even though he’s a colorful butterfly when he emerges, he’s still not happy. Can he learn to accept himself, whether he’s got stripes, spots or just bright colors?
“Charlie the Caterpillar” offers a gentle lesson in self-acceptance and confidence. The story was inspired by a whimsical conversation with the author’s wife, Lesley, and daughter, Riley Claire, about a caterpillar trying on fashion inside its cocoon.
The book’s lively cartoon illustrations in vibrant colors bring the story to life. Its lyrical words work for both reading silently and aloud. The author teamed up with musician and songwriter Thomas Daniel to create a song from the book, “Charlie the Caterpillar.” It’s available on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon Music.
Author Andy Gutman is a businessman.
