Book Review - The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Eric Carle

A young reader’s classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle is a whimsical and engaging book that your preschooler can grow up with. Each page turn will surprise your child with its bright hues and shapes as it tells a butterfly’s life story from egg to cocoon. This insect’s love of food also provides a chance to count, to notice differences in color and changes in size. Children ages 1 to 5 will have a blast learning about nature’s transformations and reading this book with you again and again. Ready to join the transformation? You can find The Very Hungry Caterpillar right here on Amazon.
