A+++ Brilliant book that covers the life cycle of a butterfly from egg to flight. Also covers days of the weeks, colours, counting and healthy eating!! A firm favourite with pretty well any small child :-)
This is a great, classic book. The kids love to put their fingers in the holes in the section of the book where the caterpillar eats the fruit!
The best, a total classic, and really cute.
Eric Carle is best known for his illustrations for this all time favorite children's book. Here is what was the inspriation for this book in his words: "One day I was punching holes with a hole puncher into a stack of paper, and I thought of a bookworm and so I created a story called A Week with Willi the Worm. Then later my editor, who didn't like the idea of a worm, suggested a caterpillar and I said "Butterfly!" And the rest is history."Source: 3x3 The Magazine of Contemporary Illustration Vol.Six No.Three
