"In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf." So begins Eric Carle's modern classic. This 5" x 4" Penguin Group (USA) The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Miniature Edition is truly tiny and features tiny type, making it a nice size for small hands to hold and flip through the pictures. Despite its diminutive state, the book is complete in every detail, following the ravenous caterpillar's path as he eats his way through one apple (and the pages of the book itself) on Monday, two pears on Tuesday, three plums on Wednesday and so on, until he is really fat and has a stomachache! Kids love butterfly metamorphosis stories, and this popular favorite teaches counting and the days of the week, too.

This book is great. So much fun! A chance to really get into what you're reading and make it fun! Good chance to review counting/numbers, colors and encourage healthy foods..shows what eating too much junk food can do too...bellyache. My son is 4 and this has been his favorite book for about a year. My daughters are 3 and they too love this book. We got it as a gift and I will be sure to buy it for other little ones!

This book had very high ratings, so I thought I'd try it. Neither my son or I enjoyed it all. It is very short and the cut up pages make it impossible to read to a baby. I would not rec this book.

Great thick cardboard page version of my favorite book from Kindergarden. Even has the shortened pages and holes in the fruit the caterpillar eats!
Will make a great baby shower gift.
