The world around us is full of millions and millions of often underappreciated but amazingly fantastic bugs. From the tiny ant to the big, beautiful butterfly, each has its own unique characteristics that allow it to thrive in its environment. What Does a Caterpillar Do? shows children some of these bugs through the eyes of a cheeky caterpillar as they learn about what makes the insects so different.

Featuring bright and beautiful illustrations from Lucy Rogers, What Does A Caterpillar Do? takes us on a wonderful journey through nature to meet bugs like bees, ladybugs and dragonflies. Each insect radiates personality as the curious caterpillar attempts to mirror their unique characteristics. The simple narrative uses trusted teaching techniques of repetition and humor to guide younger children through the story.

What Does A Caterpillar Do? was written in memory of Chloe and Aubrey Berry, and all profits are being donated to the Victoria Child Abuse Prevention and Counselling Centre.
