"The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle

The Very Hungry caterpillar, Eric Carle.

Although published over fifty years ago, it is very relevant,and great read.

 I love Eric Carle's style and contents, themed around growth and time. His stories is inspiring. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a picture book at its best.

"In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf" 

The story evolves around the developmental cycle of a butterfly, from being an egg, into a caterpillar, how it struggled to look for food to grow, built a cocoon around itself, until it finally developed to be a beautiful BUTTERFLY. In its colorful and engaging style, the book will keep young learners inspired and entertained. 

It was fun, to see the caterpillar went through lots of foods, until he had a stomachache, kept itself in a cocoon, stayed in it for more than two weeks. And then nibbled a hole in the cocoon, pushed his way out and became a colorful butterfly.

The book, is celebration of color, and growth!

I will definitely give it a 5 stars. young readers will love every bit of it. So much to learn from the book. Indeed, Eric Carle is a great designer, illustrator, and author. 

It is a FUN Child's book that teaches without kids knowing that they are learning. The days of the week, to the fruits, and counting of numbers, as well as colors. It is a beautiful read, that every young reader will enjoy to read by themselves.
