Book Review - Catie's Secret


Catie Caterpillar looks different from any bug Herbie and Bella have ever seen. When Herbie makes fun of Catie, Mayor Benny shows him why he should not judge anyone by how they look. In the end, Catie reveals a secret and the bunnies learn the joy of forgiveness.

Catie's Secret is the second book in Laura Allen Nonemaker's children's series, God's Secret Garden Adventures. Like the previous book, Benny's Angel, Catie's Secret invites young readers to join an exciting adventure while it teaches a valuable lesson.


Laura began writing as a child in Bermuda when a favorite teacher had one of her essays published in a local newspaper. She is a contributing writer for Kentucky Monthly Magazine and her first children's book, Benny's Angel, was published in 2011. She is on the planning team for Artful Missions, which produces juried art shows and donates most of the proceeds to ministries that help women and children escape human trafficking. When Laura is not dreaming up her next God's Garden adventure, she enjoys spending time with her large family.

This is such a sweet children's book! The story is about two young bunny rabbits that are out eating the early morning clover. They are observing their surroundings when they come across Catie - a black and yellow caterpillar. This caterpillar is quite ugly, in their opinion. This is where the life lessons are learned.

This is a wonderful book for teaching that we don't all look alike - we may even think that someone or something looks ugly or funny - but we are all God's creatures and we don't know what's inside that person until we get to know them. I thought this was a wonderful way to teach this important lesson. 

The pictures in this book are great - colorful and eye appealing. Children will love all the bright colors and cute pictures. This would be a great book to read to the really young or a great book for those in elementary school. 

I also liked that at the end of the book there are some questions for your child to ponder over. They really bring home the important lesson that this book conveys. They are simple questions yet will help our child to really think about what they learned in the book. 

This would be a wonderful Christmas present for any child! I really liked it!
