I have very fond memories of reading this book with my mom when I was younger. It is still one of my favourite children’s book of all time! There are a lot of pictures, which are great for little kids who can’t read yet, or are learning how. There are also a lot of everyday vocabulary words to learn! Eric Carle did a great job at telling a fun and simple story about a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, making this book a classic bed-time story. I would highly recommend this book, especially for little kids! I think that they will fall in love with it! @PenelopeScriptor of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

As an avid reader of children books from the time I was a kid to even now as a young adult, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a well-deserved classic and an amazing story.  Author Eric Carle’s simple and amusing plot takes you along the journey as the caterpillar blossoms into a beautiful butterfly. This is the perfect book for young children learning or teenagers in a nostalgic mood.  I really do think The Very Hungry Caterpillar is beautifully illustrated, written, and a great read regardless of your age. 3.7 out of 5.
