The Lovereading4Kids comment

A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.

This is a much-loved classic, but as relevant today as it was when first published in 1969! Now available in this board-book format, its vivid and colourful illustrations and cut back and die-cut pages together with some very simple text provide a wonderful story that is immensely satisfying for parents and child alike.

Synopsis

The Very Hungry Caterpillar (Board Book) by Eric Carle

Featuring colourful collage illustrations, simple story, die-cut pages and finger-sized holes, this book is suitable for children.

Reviews

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. (2-4 yrs) (Kirkus UK)

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
