From Our Editors

Hand picked by our Panel of Experts the IndigoKids Recommends program offers book suggestions designed to help you find the perfect book easily and confidently. Like Jon Scieszka, Eric Carle obviously sees the world with unique vision and presents that vision to young readers in an equally distinct way. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a perfect example, a board book splashed with colour and a cute little protagonist. The story tells of a ravenous young caterpillar who's eating a lot so he can become a beautiful butterfly. This is a wonderful title in a great body of work, including The Grouchy Lady Bug? and Have You Seen My Cat?.
