The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Eric Carle The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Count all ten things the caterpillar eats until it cocoons, and becomes a ...butterfly!!

Brief Review

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.
