Litfuse Publicity was kind enough to provide me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Catie the caterpillar doesn’t look like any other creature that rabbit siblings, Herbie and Bella have ever seen before in God’s Secret Garden. Herbie doesn’t think her differences are attractive and comments loudly about her displeasing appearance, while Bella worries that they should just leave Catie alone. Uncle Benny shows Herbie and Bella that God’s Secret Garden is full of wonderful secrets hidden inside different looking objects; an acorn and a bluebird egg. The bunnies realize that teasing Catie was unfair and that she too might be carrying one of God’s beautiful secrets. Herbie looks for Catie to apologize, but is unable to find her anywhere in the garden, because she has undergone an amazing transformation. Can you guess Catie’s Secret?
Catie’s Secret is a delightful tale highlighting the importance of recognizing individual differences as a beautiful part of God’s plan. Accepting and appreciating those different from us and forgiving others who fail to accept us as we are is integral to this loving story. The book is made complete by a collection of questions at the end meant to apply the lessons learned to a child’s own experience and a listing of fun trivia facts including a link for kits that kids can use to watch their own butterfly transformation. A free audio download of this book is also provided on the back cover.
