The very hungry caterpillar, is a colorful story about a caterpillar who emerges from an egg and spends an entire week feasting on all kinds of foods. After popping out of an egg on Sunday, the very hungry caterpillar eats holes through the book's pages, beginning with one apple on Monday, two pears on Tuesday, ending with five oranges on Friday, and ten different foods on Saturday (chocolate cake, ice cream, a pickle, Swiss cheese, salami, a lollipop, cherry pie, sausage, a cupcake, and watermelon). Not surprisingly, the very hungry caterpillar ends up with a stomach ache. Fortunately, a serving of one green leaf helps his stomache feel better. The now very fat caterpillar builds a cocoon. After staying in it for two weeks, he nibbles a hole in the cocoon and emerges into a beautiful butterfly.

I chose The Very Hungry Caterpillar, because it has always been my favorite children' book. I remember as a young child listening to my mom read this book to me, and now i share this story with my niece and nephew. This enjoyable interactive book is fun, engaging and educational. The eye catching illustrations and creative story line is captivating to children of multiple ages. This book is a good introduction to the days of the days of the week, counting, as well as some basic science concepts.

Why I choose this book.

By: Eric Carle

This short and simple story is full of learning opportunities from days of the week, to counting, to metamorphosis. The words are easy enough for a small child to understand the story line and for a beginning reader to get through with little difficulty. The adorable and colorful illustrations engage even the youngest children.

Why It's good for more than one age group.
