This picture book from best-selling author Karen Kingsbury introduces Cody the caterpillar. Cody isn’t happy being stuck on the ground, but he’s encouraged to have faith and soon discovers than God has a wondrous plan for him.
Cody, the caterpillar isn't happy being stuck on leaves and eating them. Sounds like some of us? We do not like being ar certain places in our lives. We are unaware that we are growing and maturing, only to move on to a better place. Cody, longs to have wings and fly to the land where he sees colorful birds. Little does he understand that in due time, his wish will become true. Karen uses that story of the how a caterpillar changes into a butterfly to illustrate that God has good plans for us and in due time we will see them become a reality.
My son loved the colorful illustrations. There are 2 pages that just shows a big, beautiful butterfly! It took many readings for him to understand how the caterpillar becomes a butterfly. Older children have a lot to learn from the story on how to wait patiently for God's timing in life.
