This is a classic Eric Carle. As always his bright illustrations bounce off the page and his simple text makes it the perfect read for young toddlers and children. As a concept book, children can count along while the caterpillar fills up. It’s also a great STEAM book where children learn the lifecycle of a butterfly. ( )

12/21/15: I got this last night for Nephew. This particular edition has cardboard pages with holes bored through where the caterpillar has been eating. I'm hoping he will like the tactile presence of the book. I know he will like the bright colors.

Update 1/4/16, post-holiday evaluation: Nephew LOVED this book. He had quite a stack of books under the Christmas tree this year. This was the first one he picked up. Later, after he climbed into mom's lap for a while, he pulled this with him and handed it over for reading. When asked if he wanted to look at other books, he most certainly did not. He wanted to read this one some more. In short, total, complete success. Because all that matters is that I am the best auntie. And also that I get Nephew addicted to Goodreads someday. ( )

Of course there is a reason this is a classic. Simple, colorful, counting and nature story, along with a little humor. Delightful. ( )

This book is about a hungry caterpillar that seems to not get full. As the caterpillar continues to eat, it gets bigger and bigger. ( )
