Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar is the quintessential children’s picture book. It is the perfect early learning tool because it introduces so many concepts to children including colours, days of the week, food types and of course metamorphosis as the very hungry caterpillar turns into a beautiful butterfly.
Carle’s collage illustration style is bright and colourful and the repetitive text is wonderful for children from a very young age right up to those who are beginning to read themselves.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a story that never grows old even though it will be turning 60 in 2009. It is a tale that parents will always enjoy reading and re-reading to their children.
This classic hardback edition is a gift that will last for generations.
