Eric Carle has always been a favorite of myself & my sons. The Very Hungry Caterpillar was the very first Eric Carle book we purchased way back when. The artwork & storyline are fantastic & it teaches many things - days of the week, numbers, colors, different edible food, & changing from a caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly. A children's classic you will not regret adding to your collection. & then start looking for other Eric Carle titles.

Love the book, but didn't realize how teeny it was
This is my son's favorite book. I bought it to replace the board book he destroyed when he was younger (from excessive page turning). ;)
When I got this book I thought it would be small, but did not realize (stupidly) HOW small. My old eyes have a harder time reading this to him!
Still a great book and one that he enjoys... especially learning all about what the caterpillar eats on Saturday.

This little guy has taught my daughter some of the basic foods in our diet... not to mention how NOT to eat them. We both recommend them just for the fun of sitting and laughing at how much he eats in one day!
Publishers Weekly, 2009-03-02 In honor of the 40th anniversary of Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar comes the first-ever pop-up edition of this book. When the familiar, tiny caterpillar pops out of his egg, a dial lets readers help him chug across Carle's earthy color palette. Next, the caterpillar eats his way through a week's worth of pop-up fruit, as well as a full-page display of sweet and savory treats, (resulting in a stomach-ache), before his eventual transition into a butterfly. The pop-ups, particularly a half-cylinder tree trunk that sprouts from the center of the spread and a large accordionlike cocoon, are well executed and engaging. While the prominent use of white space lends a sparser feel than in the picture book, the shimmering wings of the pop-up butterfly dazzle on the final spread. Ages 3-up. (Mar.)
