The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a great book for any young children around preschool through 1st grade. The book is about a caterpillar that starts off from just and egg. Then, the caterpillar starts eatting a leaf. Then he starts to eat some fruits, and then more fruits. After he is done with that he gets to his sweets. For instance cake, pie, and ice cream. Even though he eats all of that he still eats another leaf. By this time the caterpillar is full and makes a cacoon, and then he turns in to a beautiful butterfly. The author Eric Carle always comes up with gimics for little kids in his books. For example, the book has holes in it so it appears the caterpillar is actually eatting. I recommend this book to the young. The older you get the cornyer it gets. Not a classic but overally good a book.

I thought that The Very Hungry Caterpillar was a great story. It is a great book for kids of all ages. When I was little I read lots of times maybe everyday so you see its great book. It tells the story of a caterpillar from its birth through its growing but I don't want to give away the ending. The author really Knew what he was doing because he created one of the greatest children's books ever. He used vibrant colors and little words. This book is worth every penny believe me your kids will read it over and over again.

The Very Hungry Caterpiller is great for teaching metamorphosis but it is lacking in a few facts..... Caterpillars which wrap themselves into cocoons become moths, not butterflies. The illustration of the butterfly is mysteriously 'top wings on bottom' upside down and my 5 year old reads this and wonders WHY the caterpillar ate so much. For a springboard for teaching it is fine but standing alone it does not do well.

I would give this book to a 3-5 year old child because I think any older and the child would get very bored with the story line and pictures. This book teaches the stages of a caterpillar's life and that everything changes over time. I think this is a good book for the age group indicated and that many of them will enjoy this book.

Great gift and classic book for all children, but I was intending on purchasing the large version and nowhere did I find the dimensions or realize this was a mini size. On the other hand it is great for travel and again a great book.

I ordered this book, and as much as it's a great story, my book arrived damaged. Not too pleased with this specific product.

Book is great, not impressed with the miniature size. I thought I was purchasing the full size.

Young kids like the book for the bright colors and the holes. As an overweight adult I feel conflicted about the book's message that while overeating will make you sick it will also turn you into a something better.
