Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of the most popular picture books on the shelves of schools and libraries throughout the world. Wonderful collages illustrate its insect hero’s metamorphosis: from his beginnings as a newly hatched caterpillar, to pupa, to a magnificent butterfly. Carle's story is simple and charming, as the caterpillar eats its way through the days of the week, devouring many of the foods children also love, such as an apple, a muffin, strawberries, and cake. This picture book is not only a delightful story, but also a counting-game, with holes on each page representing how many pieces of food the little caterpillar has eaten. Readers from pre-K to Grade 2 will relish the caterpillar’s gusto, learning a bit of science along the way.
