The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Eric Carle

by Peter

Everybody likes to eat, and the "very hungry" caterpillar is no exception. He chows down on wonderfully illustrated goodies that seem to pop out of the pages. This book was one of my favorites as a child because the caterpillar didn't just eat healthy foods; he also had a bit of a sweet tooth as well. I cheered him on in an effort to convince my parents to let me have seconds on dessert. It rarely worked, but I still got a great story.

The book has a plot that goes beyond the food pyramid and midnight cravings. Eventually the caterpillar forms a cocoon around himself and falls asleep, later waking up as a butterfly.

This metamorphosis puts a positive spin on reading children to at bedtime, because they too might wake up to new and exciting things. The colorful imagery inspired my imagination, and will capture the spirit of youth for years to come. Who knows what changes morning might bring?

There must be so many children in the world that have this book and love it. You can even get the little caterpillar himself, or puzzles of the Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Thanks Peter,
