Hello, Little One is about Little Caterpillar who experiences a mostly solitary green world, until he meets Orange, a magnificent monarch butterfly. Through Orange, Little Caterpillar learns about the greater world, makes a friend, and learns about himself as well. This story is so beautiful, told with lyrical language that sheds light on the cycle of life. It touches you in a magical way that you will continue to hold in your heart long after.

Description


Caterpillar crawls from leaf to leaf, eating and waiting, all alone in a big, green world. Then Orange appears—Orange floats, and flits, and flies, graceful and beautiful. In this sweet, moving story of intergenerational friendship, a small caterpillar is befriended by a glorious monarch butterfly, and together they learn to see the world through each other’s eyes.
