Who remembers "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle from their childhood? I recently learnt it has been around for over 40 years!
My children were given it for Christmas (2012) and it is one of their favorites just like it was mine. And as of May 2013 we read it everyday and I am not yet sick of it, now that is saying something for a children's book because I am sure all parents can relate to getting SICK and tired of the same book :-)
The story follows this little hungry caterpillar from his days as an egg, to his journey to eat through everything to become large enough to cocoon himself up and emerge a beautiful butterfly. The kids love the holes the caterpillar has eaten into the book as he goes about his food search and turning the pages using these finger holes (a gimmick I know but it adds to the fun for them!)
We are also not the only family that loves it as Amazon give it a 4.6 out of 5 star user rating with 587 people giving it the full ***** 5 stars*****
