“The live action images of Chester and other caterpillars in your garden are very engaging! Being able to see these interesting creatures crawling, feeding, growing, and developing…is a great opportunity for children to observe the life cycle if they don’t have live larva to view up-close.”~ Kimi Hosoume,
FOSS Curriculum Developer, Lawrence Hall of Science, UC Berkeley"
