Count all ten things the caterpillar eats until it cocoons, and becomes a ...butterfly!!
This is a counting picture board book for the very young that is both instructive and fun. The caterpillar eats through one apple, two pears, ...five oranges, until ten foods most children will like have been chomped. The Hungry Caterpillar, finally, gets a stomach ache that is eased by eating a green leaf, but now the caterpillar is very fat. It makes a cocoon, and transforms into a butterfly, Yaay!! My six year old still enjoys it.
Spider resists the calls of various, too crudely illustrated, animals to play, as we see her build her web to eat a fly.
As the little spider builds her web, various farm animals ask her to join in their play, but she resists. The spider's productive effort is rewarded when she catches a fly. Unfortunately this popular story is undermined by overly crude images aimed at children who are still learning what the animals really look like.
