My Favourite Caterpillar!

Eric Carle's delightful book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a classic children's book for a good reason. Follow along the ravenous caterpillar's path as he eats his way through a variety of fruits, the days of the week, and literally the book. Finally on Friday the caterpillar starts to eat through junk food and has a tummyache. This book shows children how to count, the days of the week, and what food you should and should not eat. The pictures are delightful collages filled with vibrant colours and simple shapes. The story repeats the same lines over and over "And he was still hungry" which is important for a child's reading development. One of my favourites that I love to share! - Bronwyn
