Strikingly bold, colorful pictures and a simple text in large, clear type tell the story of a hungry little caterpillar's progress through an amazing variety and quantity of foods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Carle There are so many wonderful things about this book; the illustrations, the opportunity for counting; the holes that children can touch. This book is Eric Carle at his very best. Every child should have this in his or her library.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of Our Favorites This book is an enduring classic for a reason. In one short, entertaining book it teaches days of the week and counting, with plenty of opportunity to teach colors, too. Our nine-month-old loves the pictures and loves sticking her fingers in the holes, too. Miraculously, I haven't tired of reading it yet, either!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully illustrated This book is a wonderful, colorful, artfully illustrated masterpiece. The story of tiny caterpillar to butterfly is a great starting place for preschool science discussions, as well as for talking about not judging a "book by its cover". Love this!
