Eric Carleâ's The Very Hungry Caterpillar is now available for the first time in a new, oversized board book format, perfect for storytime or for playtime. Plus, as an added bonus, it includes a CD of Eric Carle reading his classic story. This fine audio production makes a great listen, and is a fantastic new way to encounter this famous, famished caterpillar.
On Sunday a caterpillar hatches from his egg. On Monday he eats an apple. On Tuesday he eats two pears. On Wednesday he eats three plums. The hungry caterpillar eats more and more food for every day of the week. What will happen to the caterpillar after all this eating? Die-cut pages and colorfully textured collage illustrations accompany the simple text. Introducing readers to colors, foods, numbers, the days of the week, and the concept of metamorphosis, THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR is the first book in Carle's extremely popular Very series that includes such other titles as THE VERY QUIET CRICKET and THE VERY BUSY SPIDER.
