The Very Hungry Caterpillar: Little Learning Library Board book edition by Eric Carle
Eric Carle is an internationally bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator of books for very young children including his most well-known title The Very Hungry Caterpillar. With his late wife, Barbara, Eric Carle co-founded The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Massachusetts in 2002.
Eric Carle divides his time between the Florida Keys and the hills of North Carolina.
Suitable for little hands to hold, this title features sturdy board pages that are durable enough to withstand the rough and tumble of toddlers. It is filled with collage art, and large and simple text.
Lets babies and toddlers join in the fun as the plush caterpillar finger puppet literally wriggles his way through the holes in each page, munching and crunching through foods before transforming into a beautiful butterfly.
Alongside the visual excitement of the author's vibrant collages of familiar animals, this title offers children the tactile experience of feeling the spider's web as it grows from a simple line into a complex and beautiful creation. It is suitable for reading aloud and sharing.
This is a giant board book version of this well-known story, which follows the caterpillar's week as he eats through a range of foods in preparation for his hibernation. The caterpillar toy can be pushed through the holes in the book as you follow the story.
