Stories for Snuggling: The Very Hungry Caterpillar

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle: Book Cover

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

A tiny caterpillar pops out of his egg one morning and is very hungry. He eats through all kinds of food, only to end up with a stomach ache. He then eats through a leaf and feels much better. Next, he turns into a cocoon, and then a beautiful butterfly!

I love this book because it shows the lifecycle of the butterfly in a fun way! There are actually holes in the book where the caterpillar has “eaten.” So cute!

Side notes:

1. When I checked Eric Carle’s website a couple of weeks ago, I discovered that this is the 40th Anniversary of this book! Libraries and bookstores are doing all sorts of fun things, and Eric Carle has released a special version of this book! How cool is that!
