- Life Cycle
From Caterpillar to Butterfly
by Deborah Heiligmam
Published by HarperCollins Publishers
From the time a caterpillar first hatches, it eats so fast that its skin can't keep up. It sheds its skin several times as it grows bigger and bigger. Eventually it forms a chrysalis and one day splits open and a beautiful butterfly emerges. What a magical metamorphosis!
