A good children’s book is full of wonderful and eye catching illustration with a entertaining and humerous storyline. Eric Carle’s book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar has all this and more.

The story is based on a hungry caterpillar who eats his way through the different days of the week (and the pages) enjoying different types of food; from fruits to swiss cheese to chocolate and ice cream, and not surprisingly, the caterpillar ends up with a stomach ache which is then relieved by a green leaf. The book is hugely educational for young children who are new to reading and incorporates days of the week, counting up in numbers and different types of foods; including regularly eating fruits and greens and an underlying message that fruit and veg are good for your stomach.

The illustration and layout of the book is great and the pages increase in size as the days of the week progress due to the caterpillar eating more and more food.

This book is aimed at children in the Early Years Foundation Stage and beginning of Key Stage 1, and is one of those books that children never tire of hearing.
