About the book: Catie Caterpillar looks different from any bug Herbie and Bella have ever seen. When Herbie makes fun of Catie, Mayor Benny shows him why he should not judge anyone by how they look. In the end, Catie reveals a secret and the bunnies learn the joy of forgiveness.
Catie's Secret is the second book in Laura Allen Nonemaker's children's series, God's Secret Garden Adventures. Like the previous book, Benny's Angel, Catie's Secret invites young readers to join an exciting adventure while it teaches a valuable lesson.
My review: This is a cute paperback with an important message! The pictures are colorful. It's appropriate for boys and girls, especially as there is a boy bunny and a girl bunny as main characters in the story. It would be great to read to a child or for those just starting to read for themselves. It has a few questions at the end for the child to apply the story to themselves and some butterfly facts, too. A really cool feature is an audio copy you can download from the publisher for free. This is the third book in the series, but it stands alone. Check it out!
I received this book free from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review.
