"Charming." --The Horn Book, starred review
"A terrific story-hour book. As day turns to night, a caterpillar crunches and munches his way through the tall, tall grass.... Besides a treat for eyes and ears, this can be used as an introductory nature lesson." --Booklist, starred review
"Bold, bright, stylized illustrations capture eye and imagination as they convey the simple, rhyming text of this outstanding nature tale." --School Library Journal, starred review
