I love looking for books to showcase on my Throwback Thursday posts. This week, I decided to take it back to the early school years. The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle was one of my older son’s favorite books when he was in Pre-K. I can’t remember how many times I read this book to him before going to bed. I love Eric Carle’s books. This one is my favorite as well. For that reason, it made my Throwback Thursday post this week.
I consider this book to be a classic and should be part of every child’s early reading experiences. It still has a special place on my bookshelves after all these years.
Suitable for children, this title covers colorful collage illustrations and its deceptively simply, hopeful story. It features die-cut pages and finger-sized holes to explore.
