A classic book to go along with this is The Caterpillar and the Polliwog. We also have this great life cycle puzzle, which continues to hold interest for H even though he generally prefers to do 200+ piece puzzles. The layering really adds an element of challenge. F loves it as well.
I would highly recommend this kit! It would be great for a birthday gift or as part of a homeschooling curriculum, or just to do for fun.
