really liked it

The very hungry caterpillar, is an entertaining book with great illustrations. The story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a simple one that puts emphasis on numbers and the days of the week. The caterpillar is not only very hungry, but he also has unusual tastes in food. After popping out on an egg on Sunday, the very hungry caterpillar eats holes through the book’s pages as he eats his way through a variety of foods, begging with one apple on Monday, and then two pears on Tuesday and by Friday he eats 5 oranges. On Saturday he eats 10 different types of foods.
Not surprisingly, the very hungry caterpillar ends up with a stomach ache. The now very fate caterpillar builds a cocoon. After staying in it for two weeks ,he nibbles a hole in the cocoon and emerges a beautiful butterfly.
Good book for reception and early KS1. Useful book to use for teaching days of the week and recapping on numbers. This book is colourful and all children love to know what the caterpillar is going to eat next, so it keeps them engaged in the story whilst helping them learn.
