The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

The Very Hungry CaterpillarThe Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

My rating: ★★★☆☆

Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a classic children's book, and it serves its audience well. In very simple sentences, it tells the story of a caterpillar's metamorphosis into a butterfly; it's perfect for parents reading to their toddlers or young children just learning how to read independently.

It's not the most enchanting story, nor will family, librarians, or teachers reading it find it particularly entertaining (barring nostalgia), but it's a wonderful first stepping stone into reading.
