“Hermie, a common caterpillar” is the first book Lucado wrote and the website describes the book as;
Hermie and his friend Wormie have always felt common. They don’t have stripes or dots, they aren’t very strong, and they can’t find anything special about themselves. But every time they pray, God tells them that He loves them all the time just as they are and that He isn’t finished with them yet. When Hermie becomes a beautiful butterfly, he realizes just how special God’s plan is for him!This is the basis of the Hermie character, naturally leading to Little Hermie a baby caterpillar for the two to five age range.
“Thank You God for Blessing Me” is a children’s board book. It is written in lyrical rhythmic lines telling a story that teaches toddlers, ages two to five, about thanking God for all He has given us as well as to doing the best they can to be kind and obey.
There is a clear message in this prayer and easy to comprehend for this age group. The illustrations are colorful and Little Hermie, though a plain caterpillar, his eyes seem to sparkle. It’s soft, sweet illustrations really catch your child’s eye. I being the mother to a 3 and 4 year old had the perfect test demographic. And I was asked no less than three times, “Can we read it again?” and “Just one more time?”
Hermie was re-launched in August 2011, along with Lucado’s other Little Hermie board book “Thank You God for Loving Me” both listed online for $6.99.
