"This is a book I STILL enjoy reading after three kids and using it every year in a spring unit in a ballet class I taught. I've read the story, acted the story, danced the story and used finger puppets for the story. It also translates into beautifully into sign language. Although the younger ones sometimes would get impatient with the eating part and I'd have to skip to it growing and becoming a butterfly."

"Of course we all know about the original "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" but this book takes it to a new level with finger puppets in each page. The book is about a caterpillar as he eats different amounts of different foods on each page. It is a great way to introduce numbers and now allows children to physically get involved by putting their finger in the puppet on each page!"
