Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Oh how everyone loved "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" book. It was first published on June 3, 1969. It was the winner of many, many children's literature awards and a major graphic design award. According to Wikipedia it has sold 30 million copies worldwide. It has been described as having sold the equivalent of a copy per minute since its publication and as one of the greatest childhood classics of all time. It is now 47 years old and has been published in 47 different languages. He's back once again munching, crunching and chewing his way through another amazing book to show kids how much he adores them. Eric Carle has taken his famous little character and created a minute book (little hands will appreciate it) that expounds on the multitude of ways "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" loves his reader. He pours out adoration by proclaiming..."You are the bees knees" and "You make the stars sparkle" and the final, "You make my heart flutter." What a gem of a book to build self-esteem, confidence and a deep sense of being loved and belonging. The classic illustrations burst with joyous colour and animates the text making it come alive to your little ones. "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" spreads the love from page to page instilling in your children that they are special thus making their world a brighter and more accepting place in which to live. This book is a perfect gift to give on Valentine's day and the good news? It contains no calories nor will it promote cavities, which are two very good things! I highly recommend it.
