Change is hard, especially when you’re a toddler! This peaceful gem highlights some of nature’s changes, such as a caterpillar becoming a butterfly; yet we also get a gentle reminder that as journeys come to an end each day, new adventures are right around the corner. Psst...“when this book ends, your story begins.”— Beth, Wild Rumpus
From a seed to a plant, from an egg to a chick, from a caterpillar to a butterfly, a child and father observe the cycles of nature and come to see that as each journey ends, new adventures begin.
