A stunningly illustrated picture book about a curious caterpillar searching for the true meaning of the word 'beautiful.' But is there one true meaning — or many? 

A caterpillar lives a simple life on his leaf until one day, an UnKnown Thing picks him up and calls him beautiful. A question forms in the caterpillar’s mind: 'What is beautiful?'

So begins a quest to discover the true meaning of the word beautiful. Much to the caterpillar’s surprise, each animal in the forest has their own unique definition: 

A bear declares that honeycomb is beautiful! 

The squirrels say leaves are beautiful! 

A mole says his burrow is beautiful!

What’s a caterpillar to do? 

How Beautiful offers kids an immersive, memorable experience. Elaborate and vivid illustrations by Melissa Castrillón, author of Yellow Kayak and If I Had a Little Dream, combine with a sweet, central message: 

  • Beauty is as diverse as we are.
  • 'Beautiful' means something different to everyone, and that’s okay!
  • The beauty of the natural world is worth celebrating!
