Hermie a Common Caterpillar is by Max Lucado and is intended for children who are just learning how to read. However, I am a big baby and the cover was cute so I judged a book by its cover and decided I would read it. Hermie is a common caterpillar, he has no spots or stripes he is just solid colored. His friend Wormie, is the same. Except both Hermi and Wormie can talk to God. Usually, they are ok with being common because they can talk to God, but sometimes they see other bugs who are strong or with a cozy house on their backs and again wonder why they are so plain. God continues to tell them that he is not done with them yet and that he loves them just the way they are. Just when Hermie finally accepts that he is common, he goes to sleep and wakes up as a beautiful butterfly!
This was a really cute book and obviously a really quick read. It is a great way to teach the lesson that God made you how you are for a reason and just because you think you might be plain – he just might not be finished with you yet and in time you will also become a beautiful butterfly. The book also had great illustrations to go along with the story.
