    The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a children’s classic that tells the story of a caterpillar as it grows into a beautiful butterfly. It also provides interactive fun to children by teaching them about the days of the week, counting, good nutrition and a lot more through its die-cut pages and attractive pictures.

    Summary Of The Book

    The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a picture book that features a caterpillar who eats a variety of foods before emerging as a beautiful butterfly. It is the story of a baby caterpillar that has a never-ending appetite for food since his birth. He begins by eating a piece of fruit on the first day and gradually goes up to five pieces a day. He then decides to try out newer foods like Swiss cheese, salami, cherry pie, chocolate cake and so on. Not surprisingly, he soon nauseates himself by overeating. He spins a cocoon around him after recovering and finally emerges out of it as a beautiful butterfly with bright, large and gorgeous multi-coloured wings after two weeks.

    The Very Hungry Caterpillar uses the author’s signature style of collage illustrations, pages that have “eaten” holes and simple text that introduces the reader to a butterfly’s life stages and also the concepts of counting, the days of the week and different kinds of food.
    This book has been translated into more than 55 languages including French, Chinese, Russian and Swedish, and has sold over 30 million copies the world over. It has won a number of awards such as the Selection du Grand Prix des Treize, American Institute of Graphic Arts Award, and the Nakamori Reader's Prize. In the year 1969, The New York Times listed it as the Ten Best Picture Books of the Year. It was adapted for television by the Illuminated Film Company, UK and Disney, U.S.A. Its film rights sold for £1 million.

    Just amazing!

    The Very Hungry Caterpillar is an amazing book for toddlers. It comes as board books as well as paperback; but i guess the book-tearing/mishandling fades away by 2.5 (or maybe it depends on how early the kid has been around with books). In that case, a paperback is just good.
    It introduces kids to the metamorphic life-cycle of a butterfly, weekdays, fruits and other eateries. The eateries that the caterpillar eats are alien to the Indian context; and that is the only thing that is not fine w...

    Appropriate for babies and toddler

    The eye catching bright illustrations of the caterpillar and all that it eats to finally transform into a butterfly is appropriate for babies. My four month old, given her limited attention span, was enamored by the vivid colors and the short story helps in making the entire exercise of reading to her pleasurable for me as well. The tactile nature of the book with the little holes in each object that the caterpillar gobbles through to get a stomach ache also helps get the attention of the lit...
