This is a perennial staple in the children's books collection I've amassed over the years.    When my son started showing interest in being read-to, I pulled out my trusty old, paperback version of this book.    BIG NO NO with a teething baby.    Our local children's librarian said that it's a great idea to allow babies to explore 'reading' with all senses, including mouth.    As my little guy liked the imagery enough …

Pros: VERY educational and FUN     Cons: Not one     The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of those books that a child delights in reading again and again. It contains lessons on many levels.

The young pre-reader is delighted by growing list of items that the caterpillar eats. They can relate to the caterpillar growing …
