Picture and Story by Ashley Hughes
a common caterpillar who thinks there is nothing special
about him. He and his friend Wormie pray that God will explain to
them why he made them so common. God answers each time that he is not
finished with them. They feel better until the next day they run into
many different animals that are very special and talented. An ant that
is strong, a snail that has a hard shell to keep him dry, and a
ladybug that has spots. They then go back to God and ask again why he
made them so common. God then answers that he is not finished with
them. Hermie then turns to Wormie and tells him that he is very sleepy.
He makes himself a soft, comfy bed and sleeps. As he slept he had a
funny dream. He dreamed that he was special like the ant, snail, and
the ladybug. When Hermie woke up he was covered from head to toe. He
then felt something on his back and suddenly two beautiful wings
fluttered open and he began to fly. He then realized that God was not
through with him and made him into a beautiful butterfly.

things the book mentioned?
