“The Very Hungry Caterpillar”
Simple story. Great bold, colourful illustrations. My daughter loves putting her fingers in the holes on each page - aren't books great when they are about so much more than just the words. Great entertainment... More
“Just what I was looking for”
This is the basic story book in cardboard- great for little hands! I especially love the pages where the caterpillar eats through the all of the food- fun for little fingers exploring the book. Bought for my nephew... More
An excellent classic book. This one is great for my 2 year old because it's a board book so it withstands a lot of page turning by heavy hands.
A great addition to any child library
