The Lovereading4Kids comment

You may be aware that Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and rather than a card or a bunch of flowers why not buy this little hardback which, full of Eric Carle’s luminous, kaleidoscopic images, will fill the day with an explosion of colour and brighten up the world every time it is opened. A succession of Carle illustrations of animal mums and their babies – kangaroos, giraffes and, particularly splendid, elephants – are accompanied by short lines of text celebrating all that mums do for us but it’s the pictures, full of life and energy, that hold our attention (as for the Very Hungry Caterpillar, he’s hiding on each page, waiting for little ones to spot him). ~ Andrea Reece

Each year on 20 March, the first day of Spring, Very Hungry Caterpillar Day is celebrated! Why not celebrate too?! Click here to find a Very Hungry Caterpillar Activity Pack to help you get the most out of the day.

Praise for The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Every child should experience this wonderful, cumulative story, with its brightly coloured pictures of the tiny but greedy caterpillar that eats his way through one apple, two plums and three pears before turning into a beautiful butterfly. The board version stands up well to the inevitable poking of little fingers through the holes in the pages. Kirkus UK
