Finally we have read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, I cant believe it took so long. I of course knew of the book and it had been on the reading list for ages, but it kept slipping through the net. It was worth the wait! Owen chose it from his nursery school library and I couldn’t wait to come home and find out all about the celebrated caterpillar.
The brightly illustrated story follows the life cycle of a caterpillar from a tiny egg to fluttering beauty. A few lessons including counting and days a of the week are woven into the story. And a valuable lesson for us adults too – perhaps we all need a hearty green salad after some overindulgence 😉
We all highly recommend indulging in The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Read it sooner then we did!
