Bill Martin Jr? Lois Ehlert? I was sold before even opening the cover but once inside I was thrilled beyond words. This sweet rhyme fosters the development of Sounds, as well as Vocabulary with the use of words such as bower, cabbage and wren. Large, colorful illustrations in Ehlert’s classic collage style make this perfect for reading to a large group or one on one at bedtime. Excellent for toddlers this book also works for older preschool children with the inclusion of a caterpillar/butterfly glossary at the back.
I immediately added this book to our reference collection for use next Spring at our Hungry Caterpillar program. Perfect as a read-aloud or transformed into a flannel!
