The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is one of my favorite picture books. When I was completing my practicum for my degree in Art Education, I did a unit on this book. The Very Hungry Caterpillar captivated my kindergartners. They loved making egg crate caterpillars and tissue paper collages to go along with the story.
Now that I have my own children, I get to revisit this fun book and share it with them. Snuggled up together on the couch, we read the story and we talk about all the good food and not so great food, the caterpillar eats.
