Book Review: Hermie, a Common Caterpillar By Max Lucado

I recently read the Children’s book, Hermie, a Common Caterpillar by Max Lucado. I received a reviewer’s copy through booksneeze. Hermie is a book about a simple catepillar who longs to be something extra special. He asks God why he isn’t as amazing as some of the other bugs in the garden. God tells Hermie that He’s not finished with him yet wand reminds him to be patient while He finishes working out His plan. God shows Hermie just how special he is when he is transformed into a beautiful butterfly at the end of the book. The theme of the book is that each person is created by God in a unique and special way; we just need to be patient and wait to see what God has in store for us. I read this book to my 5, 4, and 2 year olds and they LOVED it! The illustrations are wonderful and the message is perfect for helping small children to realize that they are special because they are different. Each child is a precious gift from God. I would recommend this book for every home and church library. It would also make a great gift for the little one(s) in your life!
