The Tiny Caterpillar and the Great Big Tree

Although this book isn’t by a Canadian author I felt it deserved a review on this site anyway.

The Tiny Caterpillar and the Great Big Tree is a children’s book written by author Kelly Moran that is sure to impress parents and children of all ages.

With its colourful illustrations done by Lynn Lorbeske, The Tiny Caterpillar learns about acceptance, forgiveness and adventure while realizing that change and differences are nothing to cower from. Moran has readers follow the tale of the relationship between a tiny caterpillar and the great big world around him through persistence and devotion to friendships already made.

Falling in love with Moran’s collection of short stories and poems in An Insomniac’s Dream: A Collection of Poems and Short Stories I knew I had to get her children’s book for my newest addition. When she offered me a copy for review I couldn’t pass up the amazing offer and will soon be buying my own copy of this fantastic story.

Thanks for reading,
