Wonderful book Feb 21, 2008
We checked this book out first at the library. My three (almost 4) year old would not let us take it back. He absolutely LOVES this book. He knows it verbatum, and it is his favorite book. Because he loves it so much, and we finally had to take it back, I decided to get it for him for his birthday. I also ordered Sheridan Cain's other book. I hope it's as good as this book.
The Crunching Munching Caterpillar (Tiger Tales) Apr 12, 2007
The book is fun to read with kids. It shows the development of the catterpillar through to the butterfly stage but makes it into a fun story.
Munch Your Way Through This Awesome Book Mar 20, 2007
What book tells you the life of a caterpillar? The Crunching Munching Caterpillar does. Sheridan Cain, the author, did a very great job writing this book. And Jack Tickle, the illustrator, did an awesome job making those pictures. It looks like Jack painted those beautiful pictures. It's a great book.
This book is for 3rd graders. But, I think it should be for lower grades too. You can even read it to a younger sibling. Also, even if you can't read, the pictures tell the story all by itself. It can even be a cartoon!
Some of the characters in the story are Sparrow, Bumblebee, and Butterfly. As you know they all have wings. But, Caterpillar doesn't. Sparrow and Bumblebee tell him that he can't fly because he's too big. But then one day something happens to him after his long winter sleep.
The setting is in a blackberry bush. It's supplied with many delicious leaves. Caterpillar crunches and munches his way through the bush. That's why it's called The Crunching Munching Caterpillar. There are also many blackberries in the bush too.
I recommend this book for young children. I even liked it too, and I'm in 4th grade! It has wonderful illustrations. It's easy to read so younger kids can read it also. You don't even have to read it you can just look at the pictures instead. It's one of the best books ever for younger children.
