3.0 out of 5 stars Cute collection but could be better. May 5 2011
Format:Board book
Very Little Library

I love the stories and images in the books provided in Eric Carle's Very Little Library. However, despite being cardboard books, one of the books had pages stuck together and part of the picture of one page tore when trying to separate them. I was also disappointed that the Lonely Firefly book didn't come with batteries for the back page that lights up.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really great buy Jan. 14 2004
By A Customer
Format:Board book
Of course, these Eric Carle books are gems. Each story is fun because they are interactive. Lights flash at the end of Very Lonely Firefly, and the intricate paging of Very Hungry Caterpillar are great for baby and toddler fingers. But try and buy these seperately, and I'm telling you that you just can not beat the price of this boxed set. It is a great, great, deal. This makes a perfect gift for a baby shower, or birthday. Since the books are the board edition you know that they will last a while too.

5.0 out of 5 stars three great books Nov. 21 2006

My little guy loves these books. He chews, drools and yanks on the pages and the books are unaffected.

Here's what the description missed...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic. May 10 2007
By Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
This is a good set. My kids (under 5) already loved the Very Hungry Catepillar and now they won't stop having us read the other two. Each one is unique. The Catepillar book shows everything a caterpillar has eaten, the Spider book lets you feel the fuzzy spider webs, and the firefly book lights up at night. Great fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite children's author Jan. 30 2011
By hg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
I'm a second grade teacher. This is my favorite children's author, and it's rare to find this set in a bookstore. While these are board books with great artwork by the author, perfect for very young children, the kids will keep loving them well into their school years. And as they grow, there is more in the books for them: They include skills to learn like counting, reading a clock face, knowing colors, understanding metamorphosis (a standard for 1st or 2nd grade, depending on your state), and they are just FULL of morals. If you like these, you should also search out The Very Grouchy Ladybug, The Mixed Up Chameleon (camouflage is also a main theme for many second grade curricula), and A House for Hermit Crab, among others by Eric Carle. I highly recommend this author!

I didn't actually see the boxed book set, but I heard from my friend and she loved it! She'd heard great things about the series for children and asked for it specifically. So, for speedy delivery and for my friend's happiness with the product, I'm giving this purchase a good review. Thanks a lot!
