The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Posted on: Wednesday, October 29, 2008

This by far, has been 1 of my boys favourite. Actually, in fact, I am not even sure if they have a favourite because they do really enjoy me reading to them. However, this book is really highly recommendable for 2 to 4 years of age because:

  • It teaches the life cycle and healthy eating habits which are important.
  • It teaches the days of the week and number counting
  • Repetitive language is used
  • The idea of using real holes through the foods the caterpillar eats through the week is revolutionary.
  • There were always things to learn and discuss with my boys from the cover to the end.

I will just post an excerpt from the book to show you to let you see what I mean.
