I read this so much as a child I actually wore the ink off the pages....by far, my favourite childhood book
Great when I was young even better now i have a daughter my self she is 16 months and goes to sleep every night with this book in her hands!
I read this book when i was like 6, its about a very hungry Catipillar that eats fruit, I like it becouse it teaches children how to count, how to identify different fruits, how to read and teaches youngsters that catipillers turn intobutterflies
this is still a really good book dont say you liked it as a kid deep down you staill want someone to read it to you every night
I loved reading this book with my boys, now I share it with my nieces! This is such a fun book that you don't get tired of reading!
Well, i haven't read this book since i was THREE! But, it was pretty awesome. It was actually one of my favorite books.

This is such a popular and greatly used book in elementary school. One great activity to do with this book is create puppets with all the food products and give one prop to each child in the class. Then as you're reading the story, have the child stand up with their puppet. They become very excited and it's a very interactive activity. Another way to have students involved is to have them read along with you. It's repetitive in a way that the catepillar is, "..still hungry". So having them say it when it's time is a great tool. Finally, you could also have them do a sequence activity after reading. This would probably be better for older children. Have them put the catepillar in order of the growth from an egg, to a catepillar, to a big fat catepillar, and finally a beautiful butterfly.
This is a great book that can be use at different ages. One activity to do with this book is body movement. As you read the story children can imitate sequentially what happens in the story. First, the egg by holding their ankles and bending down; second the larva by doing like a worm; third, pupa by crawling into a pillow case; and finally the butterfly crawling out of the pillow case with colorful laces around their arms.
Another activity could be teaching beginning sounds. This book could be use to teach the 'C' as a beginning sound.
Also, this book can be used develop language development and comprehension skills. You could have children repeat after you and make sure they understand.
I can say this has been my favorite book since i was a little girl. Now that i see this book, it brought many good memories of my childhood.
What did the caterpillar eat on the first day? How many different types of food did he eat? How long did it take to eat all that food? What days of the week did he eat the strawberries? etc...
I love this book!!!
