The Crunching Munching Caterpiller by Sheridan Cain, illustrated by Jack Tickle
Posted by hollybookscoops on November 11, 2008
Adorable illustrations bring this wonderful board book to life. Children will love the vivid colors and love to crunch and munch along with the caterpillar. The story is brought to life with many creatures telling the caterpillar that he is going to have to get used to the idea that he is not made for flying. A beautiful butterfly encourages him that his dreams of flying may come true one day. Of course, we all can guess what happens next! My only complaint is that birds do not talk to caterpillars without eating them, but on the other hand, birds and caterpillars don’t talk at all, so I guess in this fantasy world maybe birds don’t eat caterpillars.
A lovely book that will encourage fun interaction with young children. This board book goes beyond the basics to achieve more than most. I highly recommend it!
