What Does A Caterpillar Do

What Does A Caterpillar Do?

By David McArthur and lucy rogers

The world around us is full of millions and millions of unappreciated, but amazingly fantastic bugs. From the smallest ant to the largest snail, each has it’s own characteristic which makes it uniquely suited to thrive in it’s own environment. ‘What Does a Caterpillar Do?’ allows children to, through the eyes of a cheeky caterpillar, meet some of these bugs and to learn a little bit about what makes them so different.

Written by David McArthur and illustrated by Lucy Rogers. What Does A Caterpillar Do? is an interactive children’s picture book that has been carefully researched and designed to help young children learn to read through humour.

David McArthur

 I am a trained graphic designer and creative writer based in Victoria, BC. I have been imagining stories for as long as I can remember but, as a small child, struggled to read and write due to dyslexia. My early struggles with reading and writing are part of the reason I wanted to create a series of books which give children confidence to read. These days I don’t have the same struggles but they did leave me with a vivid imagination which I use to ‘live my stories’, even before they are written out on paper. 

The What Does Series started as a simple game that I played with my son as I was driving him to daycare. He enjoyed the game so much that I jotted it down and read it to him again that evening. Seeing the way he joyfully reacted to the story was so wonderful I decided to turn it into a book – just for him. Around a year later a friend saw the book and suggested I write another and get it published.

The rest, as they say, is history!

The Inspiration Behind The Book

What Does A Caterpillar Do? was written in memory of Chloe and Aubrey Berry. Chloe loved hearing my stories and, when I visited her school to read to her class, sat on my knee the entire time laughing at the silly bee and doctor. This story is about them, they are the caterpillar metamorphosing into the butterfly.

Profits from the sale of ‘What Does A Caterpillar Do? will be donated to the Victoria Child Abuse Prevention and Counselling Centre – click the button below to find out more about this amazing charity.

What Does A Caterpillar Do? Comes with a simple and powerful message:

Every child counts. It is the responsibility of every adult to cherish and protect them.

Nothing. Else. Matters.
