Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel Good Book - I want to carry with me everywhere. A mini version of a classic by Eric Carle. What a visual treat from start to finish. A week at a glance from Sunday to Sunday of the exploration of what a new caterpillar's life looks like in search of food. On its first day of life it eats a hole in a nutritious leaf. On the first day of the week: Monday, it eats through one apple; Tuesday, two pears; Saturday it really lets loose and eats everything in its path ending the day with a huge pain in its stomach; Sunday it returns to sensibility and eats through a nice green leaf again. I can't help but align it to how adults see food in combination of the days of the week and how the calendar of days can dictate what and how to eat! This book is ingeniously simple with several visual learning tools with simple language. A must addition to any young reader's collection. Oh yes and there is a beautiful visual surprise on the last two pages. I want this book for my purse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Very Hungry Caterpillar: Miniature Edition My son is a huge Eric Carle fan and I thought the book was perfect as a stocking stuffer. He thought it was neat to have the story in such a small book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad I really like the mini book. Disappointed that the wording in the mini book is so small. My grand daughter can barely see the print, so it has to be read to her. She is just starting to sound out words, but can't see them very well. Font could be bigger even though it is a mini book

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Children's classic Another great story from Carle. His illustrations are always fantastic, but his stories can be erratic. This on is a dead-on hit. It is the brief story of a caterpillar's feeding frenzy before he makes his metamorphosis into a butterfly. The book introduces children to the days of the week, the names of fruits, and numbers as the caterpillar eats through different foods each day --two pears on Tuesday, three plums on Wednesday, etc.-- until he finally weaves his cocoon and emerges as a beautiful butterfly. This story is a hit every time. Carle's bright colors and clever die-cut artwork never cease to entertain even the youngest child, and there is surely nothing in nature closer to magic than the emergence of a butterfly. This is a beautiful and fun book that will enthrall any child.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellently illustrated My 2 year older can't wait to read the pop-up book whenever I pull it out from the bookshelf! She loves to touch the beautiful 3D illustrations and is so excited to see the tiny caterpillar changed into a big fat caterpillar and then a beautiful butterfly in the end! She is now telling the story by herself! I highly recommend it to friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than what Jim says Contrary to a users review, I find this book excellent for little kids. the illustrations are simple, and its an easy read for their level. They'll be sure to remember it later in life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love it I understand how some people may think the illustrations are less than stellar, but they are bright and bold & captivate children. I read the book to my daughter, now 7 1/2 months old every day and when I say, "A beautiful butterfly!" She smiles & laughs - she understands the expression in my voice. This book is a great story for children because they enjoy it very much!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BAD Why is this preschoolers book considered GOOD? The illustrations are something a mildly skilled person could do at home and the story is MORONIC!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightfully engaging I am 31 and have fond memories of my mother reading this book to me as a child. Now I am reading to my own 2 year old daughter and she adores it. It is without a doubt her favourite book. The copy we have was bought by my mother and shipped from England. I had no idea Eric Carle was so prolific. They are simply delightful with truly engaging stories and visuals. I never tire of reading them aloud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Caterpillar Fun An Excellent early teaching tool...no better way to introduce science and nature to children under the age of three. Color creates a desire to explore the pages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A most excellent book! The very hungry caterpillar is a great spring children's book. I enjoyed the fact that without too much intense reading, the author has taught the children about the life of a caterpillar/butterfly. It has beautifully illustrated pictures of the story, in bold colours. The story itself is very easy for younger children with short attention spans to follow. I find the book gets children involved with the story. Because the wording is repetitive, after very few readings I found the children I was reading this book to, repeating the story with me. The foods that the author uses are very familiar to children too, and the children love to count the brightly coloured pictures. The book was very appealing to me as a new adoptive parent, and I can't wait to read more of this author's work, especially in this series. I know other parents will feel the same after they've read it to their children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Buy This is a great book. It is fun and creative. Kids will love the story. It teaches kids how caterpillars turn into butterflies. This lesson is taught through a creative and interesting story. Great for teachers too to teach about the life cycles of animals. Enjoy!!
