By Eric Carle, published by Puffin, RRP £6.99
What’s the story: Every child should experience this wonderful, cumulative story, with its brightly coloured pictures of the tiny but greedy caterpillar that eats his way through one apple, two plums and three pears and much more, before turning into a beautiful butterfly on the very last page.
Why we love it: It is now over 40 years since The Very Hungry Caterpillar was first published. So popular is it that there is a Very Hungry Caterpillar Day celebration every year on 20th March. This is a much-loved classic but still relevant today that’s immensely satisfying for parents and children. Available in hardback, paperback, board book, giant boardbook (with a caterpillar toy big enough to poke its way through the cut out holes in the pages), means there’s a variety of ways to introduce your little one to this most loved of children’s book.
