Reading: “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a classic for many reason. The illustrations are wonderful.While on this journey with the days of the week the caterpillar evolves from a hungry caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly.  The Hungry Caterpillar eats something different each day of the week. One Monday he eats one item with the items adding throughout the week. Monday he eats one thing, Tuesday he eats two things, etc. Again, the illustrations are fantastic.

This book is great for ages 3-7 but, I truly believe any child could enjoy this book because it’s just plan good reading. There are many supplemental activities that can be purchased to go along with this story. If not a simple Google search will give you plenty of activities.  

After reading a story, I like to follow-up with the video (when available). I like to read the story then, do a story related activity. If the story is about cookies, you can bake cookies. The activity is open to whatever you desire. Lastly, I watch the video. This is just the order that I prefer. Any and all of the activities, in whatever order, add to a love for literature.
