The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Written by Eric Carle • Illustrated by Eric Carle

A little caterpillar pops out of a tiny little egg. The caterpillar is hungry and he eats all the fruit. Then he eats lots of delicious foods like chocolate cake and ice cream. He gets a very bad stomachache. When he eats a green leaf, he feels much better. He makes a cocoon, and he stays in there for a long time. Then he pushes himself out and he becomes a beautiful butterfly.

I like the part where he comes out of the cocoon and he is a butterfly with many colors all mixed together. I like Eric Carle's pictures. He likes to paint, cut and glue to make his pictures. I do, too!

If you like to learn how a caterpillar grows, you will like this book.
