Enjoyable book -- interactive and even educational for your little ones

Another author that you have to love. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is eye catching and intriguing to toddlers and preschoolers. How much can one caterpillar eat? And what happens when he eats that much? Good introduction to the days of the week as well as some great food vocabulary. A definite plus to add to your toddler's library.

Educational to youngsters

I read this book when I was younger and I loved it. It can educate youngsters on how to read and count, about animals and the transitions they go through and also about food.

eric carle has done it again!

A book that I cherished back in my younger era of age, a great pick to mold young minds along with the story, teaching them how to count and such. A great book for your toddlers to learn from.

3P loved this book

This is a brilliant book. We think this is very educational for younger children because they can learn to count and read. Children will learn about caterpillars turning into butterflies. Children can learn about different fruits and foods. This is a very colourful book , and the pictures are amazing.
