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.

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.
