One sunny Sunday, the caterpillar was hatched out of a tiny egg. He was very hungry. On Monday, he ate through one apple; on Tuesday, he ate through three plums--and still he was hungry. Strikingly bold, colorful pictures and a simple text in large, clear type tell the story of a hungry little caterpillar's progress through an amazing variety and quantity of foods. Full at last, he made a cocoon around himself and went to sleep, to wake up a few weeks later wonderfully transformed into a butterfly!

- Smiling at the sound of familiar voices
You already know that your baby loves you! Your voice makes your baby turn their head toward you and other family members. They may even kick their legs and smile when you talk. Continuing to talk with your dear one will help them build their understanding of the sounds of our language as well as how the words go together. Simple books with one word to a page or song books can help you to have exciting things to talk about. Hold the books near your baby’s face so they can see the pictures as you point to them.

Why did we select this book?
We chose this classic book by Eric Carle not only for its bold illustrations, but as a book to grow with for the introduction to numbers, days of the week and the depiction of a healthy appetite. Beginning at birth, talk with your child by "thinking out loud." This means describing what you are doing, and describing what your baby is doing. As your child grows, continue to talk with him or her about your common experiences, pose questions, and offer comments to extend thinking and understanding of new concepts.
