Summary: Patches is an energetic caterpillar who is trying to decide what activities to do. In the end, she doesn't put any limits on herself and lives her life to the full.
I didn't think caterpillars could wear shoes. But a beautiful caterpillar named Patches sure can.
For me I would think this would be more of a girly book just because it has a caterpillar and her shoes.
Though K did like it, he didn't truly enjoy it. Now my 2 year old A she seemed interested in the story being told.
The pictures are bright and go great with the story. Patches is a fun loving caterpillar who likes shoes. She wears different shoes for different activities, of course she needs a lot of shoes because she is a caterpillar.
The book does seem to rhyme so that may also hold little ones attention.
Overall a fun and enjoyable book to read. The only thing that I would think would be better is to maybe have the words and the pictures on the same page? It wasn't really a bother that the words and picture was separate but I like to have them on the same page.
Angela was born in California to a military family. This meant that she got used to being the "new kid" in school every couple of years. It was hard trying to make new friends, but Angela discovered she had a knack for writing. In high school Angela began writing poetry and song lyrics. Expressing herself through writing seemed very natural. After becoming a Mom in 2003, Angela continued her storytelling to her own children. In 2009 she wrote and published her first rhyming children's book aimed at toddlers. Since then she has released several more children's picture books and released her first young adult romance series, The Alpha Girls, in 2012. Angela's husband, Ben Muse writes suspense/thriller books that can also be found on Amazon. Check out what else she's working on by visiting www.4eyesbooks.com
