Staff Pick

The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been a huge hit with my three-year-old; I can't count the times that I've enjoyed reading this with her. She loves to tell me all the good things the caterpillar eats, and we both enjoy yelling POP when the caterpillar comes out of the egg . This is a wonderfully written and illustrated book that your child will come back to time and time again.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the creator of the all-time classic VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR comes a sweetly resonant story about the power of friendship--now available for little hands

When a best friend moves away, it can be painful for the child who is left behind. But the spunky boy in this upbeat story makes up his mind to find his missing playmate. Friends tells a story alive with love and perseverance, brightened with vibrant art and Eric Carle's trademark fostering of imagination.

Praise for Friends:

“This story of love and determination is illustrated with Carle's extraordinary signature artwork. For anyone who would cross rivers and scale mountains for a beloved friend, this warmhearted story will create an emotional response. Young readers will learn the value of friendship and its many challenges.” —School Library Journal

 

“Often dynamic and quite beautiful . . . A picture-book tribute to the strength of childhood friendships.” —Booklist

 

Review:

"This early work by a premier author marked an exciting breakthrough in the traditional children's book format. Carle uses clever cutout pages to depict a caterpillar eating his way through the calendar week. Caterpillar also brilliantly displays Carle's ability to integrate a concept (days of the week), scientific information (the life cycle of a caterpillar), and an appealing story. (Ages 3-6)" Judith Rovenger, Sesame Street Parents

Synopsis:

THE all-time classic picture book, from generation to generation, sold somewhere in the world every 30 seconds! Have you shared it with a child or grandchild in your life?

"The very hungry caterpillar literally eats his way through the pages of the book—and right into your child's heart..."

Mother's Manual

"Gorgeously illustrated, brilliantly innovative..."

The New York Times Book Review

Synopsis:

Now even younger children can follow the little green caterpillar as he eats his way to becoming a beautiful butterfly in this sturdy board book.

About the Author

Ever since he began innovating the look and function of childrens stories in the late 1960s, Eric Carle has remained an author whose stories reliably hit the bestseller lists and remain on kids' bookshelves through generations. While his best-known work is The Very Hungry Caterpillar, which has sold millions of copies the world over, he is also the creator of such classics as The Very Busy Spider, The Very Lonely Firefly, and The Very Quiet Cricket.

The publication of Friends has led to the unlikely reunion between Eric and his long-lost childhood friend, Florence.

 

Mr. Carle lives in Northampton, Massachusetts. Visit the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts.

A classic; its bright colors grab the attention of any toddler. All 3 of my kids love it. They have so much fun listening to it the first 20 times and recalling it the next 200 they forget they are learning as well. This is a great book for every child and no library can be complete without it.

A basic introduction to the life cycle of the caterpillar/butterfly, with a fun twist thrown in. Encourages counting, and is is just all around FUN for parents and their little ones!

This book is such a classic, my now 1 year old has always loved it. We used to put his little fingers in the holes (and say chomp chomp) and now he loves to put his fingers in the holes and discover the colorful butterfly at the end!
