Hermie, a Common Caterpillar by By Max Lucado
Yup...whenever he and his friend Wormie feeling particularly down because they sees themselves as common, nothing special, ordinary; they would pray to God.They ponders why they not like others for example Antonio the mighty ant or pretty like the LadyBug
God answers their prayers patiently. He told them not to worry as He is not finish with them.
Well, no surprise there on what Hermie turned into in the end.
I find that this book is perfect for my 3 year old son and me. He is forever asking "why this...why that....why...why..why". At times, it gets to my nerves. After reading this book, I feel that I should be more patience with him.
Yes, this book teaches kids(and adults like me) to be more patience and put their trust in God. Somewhere along the line when kids grow up to be adult, we tend to forget to put our trust in God. This is a good reminder for us.
In my opinion, this book is a good way to prepare the kids to enter school life. When they goes to school, they are bound to be face with classmate who are prettier or richer or stronger or even learn faster than them. There will always be someone better than us but don't worry as God is not done with us yet. God have plans for us. If our kids believe in this then they will surely excel in whatever that they do.
I like this book. It's a good book to keep at home.
