The Very Hungry Caterpillar | Eric Carle

 

This childhood classic is praised for its iconic collage art style, featuring pages with holes in where the caterpillar has eaten. The Very Hungry Caterpillar not only entertains young learners, but also introduces them to healthy eating, counting, days of the week, and metamorphosis. It remains a popular choice of parents worldwide.

Carle also authored The Grouchy Ladybird and The Very Quiet Cricket introducing natural history to the very young reader.
