Max the caterpillar was born with his legs backwards. Even though he needed to walk with a walker, he still liked to play with his family and friends. Max loved everyone, and they all loved him.
But one day Max crawled into his cocoon never to be seen again as a caterpillar. Instead, he emerged a beautiful butterfly.
Max the Happy Caterpillar was written in memory of a boy who was born with severe physical disabilities. He lived to be six years old, and he brought so much joy to his family during his short time with them. Losing a loved one is difficult, and this simple book is a gentle reminder that life is precious. No matter how different we are or what we’re struggling with, we all need love.
