    1. I actually gave this book 5 stars, but the very hungry caterpillar ate one of them.Also, did anyone else get a defective book? My version has a bunch of holes in it.

    2. Former president George W. Bush named this his favorite book from childhood (it came out when he was 23 but perhaps he meant his kids' childhood). In any event it's one of my favorites from my childhood, and from reading to my own kids. Was it the first to put holes through its pages? Probably not, but it worked very well. Kids like sticking their fingers in things - genius!Anyhow - this is one HUNGRY caterpillar! He puts a hole through everything be it a slice of watermelon (or wacca menon as [...]

    3. Besides the promotion of drug use (look at that thing's eyes and he obviously has the munchies!) I dislike that the author couldn't come up with some differing foodstuffs come on salami AND sausage? Chocolate cake AND a cupcake? And the line that says "Now he wasn't hungry any more - and he wasn't a little caterpillar anymore" drives me INSANE! Where is the parallelism? I always want to read it as: Now he wasn't hungry any more - and he wasn't little anymore. (In fact, sometimes I DO read it wro [...]

    4. Eric Carle's books have a special place in my heart. The way he creates his illustrations makes them so colorful and appealing to all. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of our favorite books by him, but we enjoy them all equally. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, The Grouchy Ladybug, The Very Busy Spider, The Very Quiet Cricket, and Dream Snow are just a few of our most cherished Eric Carle books. When you witness a toddler who can't read, recite all the words to these stories, you know [...]

    5. Book Review3+ of 5 stars to The Very Hungry Caterpillar, a children's picture book published in 1969 and written by Eric Carle. I am sure someone read this book to me as a very small child, but I know for certain that I had it on my shelf and looked through it around 10-years old. It's a delight for all ages with the cute illustrations, the physical design of the book and the quirky personality of the caterpillar.It's a useful tool to teach young children how a caterpillar grows up, eats all the [...]

    6. A deeply touching saga of the hardship of a young catapillar's life.The main character has to overcome his ravenous appetite on his jouney to become a butterfly.There were were in my eyes and laughter too as I jouneyed with the catapillar in the greatest epic ever told.We had much to learn from the noble catapillar.

    7. I know everyone's supposed to love this book, but I just don't see what's so great about it. The character of the caterpillar is never properly developed, and he comes across as a one-dimensional parody of a larval form. The plot is dull and predictable, as is the language. I'm not thrilled by the artwork. If it weren't for the fact that George W. Bush praised Caterpillar so highly, I'd unhesitatingly call it vacuous, uninspired rubbish. I must be missing something, but what?

    8. I believe this book is THE MAJOR CAUSE of the childhood obesity epidemic currently sweeping the nation. Still, nice illustrations.

    9. Fun fact for today? A famous picture book, described as “one of the greatest childhood classics of all time” was actually inspired by a simple hole punch!Yes, incredibly, it’s true. The author remembers:“One day I was punching holes with a hole puncher into a stack of paper, and I thought of a bookworm and so I created a story called ‘A Week with Willi the Worm.’”But his editor suggested that readers may not like a green worm very much, and suggested a caterpillar instead. The idea [...]

    10. On my quest for procrastination from reading that book, I stumbled upon The Very Hungry Caterpillar on YouTube. In this video, Eric Carle himself is reading the story.This is not my first time with the caterpillar. I used to read it a lot when I worked with children. I like that it's short, that it helps them learn numbers and the days of the week. Now that I think of it, I did not have this for my son when he was small and learning to count. Shame on me.

    11. Mr. H, my grandson, loves this book so much he turned it into a play. Great show! The critics (that would be me and his aunt) raved about it! 👏🏻

    12. I this book we learn that caterpillars, like humans, enjoy eating junk food, but are probably better off just eating leaves, like humans

    13. if u haven't read this book wyd !!!! absolutely iconic, 11/10 would recommend my first fave bookit follows a very hungry caterpillar as he navigates this cruel, cruel world in search for a decent feed. Everyday he must rise and eat in a terrible, repetitive cycle that teaches us early of the mundanity of the working week. But do not worry, for at the end (spOILER ALERT !) he becomes a beautiful butterfly, and all the time he's spent existing and living within this capitalistic society which dema [...]

    14. Excised from this edition is the chapter where the caterpillar, crazy with starvation, climbs onto a sleeping frog, burrows into its brain and becomes the frog’s Slave Master. Slowly, the caterpillar uses the frog’s brain to intimidate the other amphibians using a Stalinist diktat that leads to a mass cull of water boatmen and a systematic persecution of water rats until the mallards, mad with rage, march on the frog armies in a violent, feathery uprising that leaves eight million swans dead [...]

    15. No. 199 on the BBC's Big ReadHoley Shit. Okay, I don't really know what to say about this er book, because I must've been about five when I first read it. I'm working my way up the BBC's Big Read, and so I re-read it. Except I genuinely feel lost for words, and trust me when I tell you, that never happens. However, I do remember enjoying the book as a kid, so I'm going to let my original rating stay. (Also, food porn, anyone?)Anyway, so we have a very hungry caterpillar here, and he eats through [...]

    16. As a three year old (in Germany, in 1969, thus in the same year the book was published), I absolutely adored Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar (or I should rather say that I loved the German version of the book, Die kleine Raupe Nimmersatt and that I have in fact only read the English version but this once, being last week, at our local library). And if I rate the book with my memories of childhood and my inner child in mind, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is and always will be a full and gl [...]

    17. I remembered always reading “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” when I was small and I have always loved the sweet nature of this book. I still love this book to this very day! “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” is a popular children’s book by Eric Carle and it is about how a very hungry caterpillar starts eating everything in its path. “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” is truly a cute and extraordinary book about food that children will love for many years!Eric Carle has certainly done a great j [...]

    18. Eric Carle's 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' is art in its truest form. It influences minds at a young age and is a classic, for a good reason. While simple at surface, it complies to its target audience with stunning visuals and vibrant colors. The style of the art frolics in tandem with its engaging narrative. The pages are three-dimensional and interactive, guaranteed to entertain and warm the hearts of the cynical (e.g me).The character arc of the caterpillar represents the unrealistic body im [...]

    19. Recently I have noticed a spate of Goodreaders (you know who you are K.D), poking around looking for their inner child and enjoying a few kids story books. Personally my inner child has been buried under years of bitter, twisted cynicism and the daily need to verbally abuse engineers and construction workers for exhibiting levels of stupidity that a child of Hungry Caterpillar reading age might find ridiculous. However the tiny squeaking cry of my inner child is still loud enough for me to hear [...]

    20. Yes, I know, I have never, ever read this book before - it just wasn't a book available for some european kids. And we were missing out!I admit I become interested in this book after seeing this on tumblr:I felt this on a deep spiritual level. The book did not disappoint. A very hungry caterpillar eats its way through a wide variety of foodstuffs, teaching children how to count, and the days of the week, while doing so.I bet the puncholes are super awesome for little kids, I myself was fascinate [...]

    21. Forgot how wonderful this book is. With beautiful illustrations and a story all can understand, it's a favorite for my 5 yr old and my twin 2 yr olds. If you're one of those ppl that use the library often and only keep the special and unique for your own, you'll want to make this one part of your collection.

    22. 3.0 stars. This is one Children's book that I did not read as a child but it was a favorite of my now five year old daughter and I must have read and enjoyed it a hundred times.
