Hermie A Common Caterpillar is a book by Max Lucado, illustrating to young readers that in the eyes of God, they are special. Hermie is a plain green caterpillar, not beautiful or particularly useful. He meets other insects he desires to be like and asks God why he is so plain. The story ends well when a magical transformation happens...
Hermie is written in an early reader format with a few illustrations. For kids who can't read (my kids) I read it out loud. My kids loved it! I put it on my e reader which was especially exciting for them.
My favorite part of Hermie was when Hermie kept asking God, "Why have you made me so common?" and God answers, "because I am not done with you yet!" Isn't it wonderful that no matter where we are in life, that God always has a plan for our transformation? Max Lucado relayed so many truths in this book in a way that little ones can understand.
Max Lucado continually wins my praise. He has become one of my favorite authors. I honor him for being so dedicated to sharing God's truths with kids too:
Matthew 19:1414 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
