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.

I didn't pay attention to the size off the book. It's bigger than I expected. She's going to love it.
