An all-time classic picture book with over 50 million copies sold worldwide, The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been a favourite story for many to promote learning - passed on from generation to generation.
Beautifully written and illustrated by Eric Carle, the story follows the inspiring journey of a caterpillar as it spends five days chomping its way through many varieties of food, before having a huge binge on the sixth day which gives him a tummy ache! On the seventh day, the caterpillar feels better and wraps himself in a cocoon, and finally transforms into a beautiful butterfly.
Featuring die-cut pages and finger-sized holes, this innovatively designed picture book is suitable for very young children and a richly satisfying experience for babies and toddlers with its vivid and colourful collage illustrations. There are several areas of learning covered including the days of the week, counting, colours, food and the transition from caterpillar to butterfly as the caterpillar’s appetite grows the number of pieces of fruit he eats increases.
