The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carl is a children book that shows wonderful illustrations. I respect this book so much because the detail of his pictures are just phenomenal and I cannot wait to add this book to my classroom bookshelf one day. This story is about a very hungry caterpillar and the many things he ate after he hatched from his egg. He turns into a beautiful butterfly at th end of the book. I would rate this book a four out of five stars and is listed as a AD460L on the Lexile scale. As an activity for my class, i would have my students color a sheet with the fruits that the caterpillar ate. I will tie this into math, having my students count and color in the amount of each fruit that the caterpillar ate.
