The Very Hungry Caterpillar


“The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle is a beloved children’s book that tells the story of a ravenous caterpillar’s journey of transformation. The book follows the adventures of the caterpillar as it eats its way through a variety of foods over the course of a week, including apples, pears, strawberries, and more. Despite indulging in an array of treats, the caterpillar still feels unsatisfied until it consumes a large amount of food on Saturday.

After overeating, the caterpillar experiences a stomach ache and decides to seek nourishment from a green leaf. It eats a small amount, before building itself into a cocoon. Inside the cocoon, the caterpillar undergoes a remarkable metamorphosis and emerges as a beautiful butterfly.

Eric Carle’s distinctive collage illustrations and simple, repetitive text engage young readers and teach valuable lessons about the life cycle of a butterfly, the days of the week, and healthy eating habits. “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” has become a classic children’s book cherished by generations for its charm, educational value, and enduring appeal.
