Yes, I know, I have never, ever read this book before - it just wasn't a book available for some european kids.
And we were missing out!
I admit I become interested in this book after seeing this on tumblr:
I felt this on a deep spiritual level.
The book did not disappoint.
A very hungry caterpillar eats its way through a wide variety of foodstuffs, teaching children how to count, and the days of the week, while doing so.
I bet the puncholes are super awesome for little kids, I myself was fascinated by them, which is something I shouldn't have admitted out of self-respect, but here we are.
If you have little ones, or if you like children's books, or if you are interested on what shaped the early childhoods of children in other countries, you just have got to get your hands on this book!
