I believe this book is THE MAJOR CAUSE of the childhood obesity epidemic currently sweeping the nation Still, nice illustrations. 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 food around to get his her nutrients, builds a cocoon and emerges as a butterfly A wonderful science exhibit and activity to grown your own butterflies, it can be a hands on teaching experience too Lovely memories and great things come from it.It gained in popularity again when George Bush mentioned it in a speech or interview It s also got a few readers torn up in knots You see, the caterpillar eats too much and gets ill and overweight, but emerges as a beautiful butterfly People read into it, thinking kids will eat so much and become obese and sickly.I ll probably be hated for my next comment, but seriously Relax I don t think reading this book as a child will lead to such dire consequences Wanna know why Because if you re a parent or guardian, read it to your kid and explain the whole story talk about the process of nature and metamorphosis Discuss eating habits Explain what real beauty is Talk about what foods are good and what foods are bad Show how when you eat too much, you can get sick Teach balance But don t hate on a book because it seems to say eat what you want and you ll be beautiful even when you re sick Oh, and read it with a child Don t just put it in his her hands and shove them out of the way Make it an interactive experience so the right goals of the book are understood and accomplished.Yikes, my reviews are getting animated without even using GIFs Off to get some lunch Perhaps a box of cookies I think I just learned that lesson reading some reviews on Goodreads about this book Yum FYI Wrote this review 2017 from memory as I want to have a review for everything I remember reading If I messed it up, let me know LOLAbout MeFor those new to me or my reviews here s the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you ll also find TV Film reviews, the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I ve visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the who what when where and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping by Note All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them Many thanks to their original creators polldaddy poll 9729544 polldaddy poll 9719251 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 just how much they love them too 5 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 and he wasn t a little caterpillar any drives me INSANE Where is the parallelism I always want to read it as Now he wasn t hungry any and he wasn t little any In fact, sometimes I DO read it wrong on purpose It also just leaves me a little empty at the end I keep waiting for his metamorphosis to propel him into some new situation Is he still hungry and in his state as a caterpillar, the author mentions he is VERY hungry Is he MORE hungry than other caterpillars What factors created this ultra state wherein he persists I really feel like the author left us questioning so many factors, that I didn t really ever feel a connection with the protagonist. 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. There are some books I m just not smart enough to read but, darnit, I challenged myself and I finally made it through The Very Hungry Caterpillar after several false starts I m not gonna flatter myself that I unnerstood the depth of the ideas, themes and junk in it, but I liked the colours and pitchers and stuff Oooooh man lookit this lil guy He eats an apple, two pears, three plums he s a beast Does he stop there Nuh to the uh Four strawberries and then FIVE count it, FIVE oranges This unstoppable motherfucker And then shit gets really fucked up all bets are off Cake, ice cream, cherry pie, a lollipop he is Off The Chain We ve all been there after a trying week no judgements lil dude I wonder if this book is inadvertently responsible for the health at any size fat acceptance movement with its message of eat like a pig and become beautiful I m not gonna spoil the ending of course but it s worth the journey It seems predictable because he s a caterpillar but it leaves things wide open for a sequel I mean, this guy is now mobile than ever what else is he gonna eat next A pizza Two pizzas THRE you re right, that s too much You know what made me really laugh My edition had a SUMMARY at the start The summary was this large paragraph that was as long as the book s lines put together Who needs a fucking summary for The Very Hungry Caterpillar Who can t read this in no seconds flat and get the jist of it Which parent is looking at this wondering if it s suitable for their braindead sprog to dribble on Anyways This thing is still the greatest book about greedy caterpillars out there and rightly deserves its legendary status Just don read it when you res dieting hawmahashsahwanasm The first time my baby ever laughed was while we were looking at the butterfly on the last page and I was talking to him about butterflies Instant fave. 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 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 my daughter first said it , ice cream cone, or sausage It is in fact one of the bestselling books in the history of literature what does this epic teach us 1 Everything in moderation Our caterpillar just sticks a single hole in each food item he ain t that sort of greedy, he ll leave some for others.2 Try new things Our caterpillar ain t picky, he ll try anything once, even gherkin 3 Eat healthy to avoid stomach ache A nice green leaf will sort you out.4 Change is good Straighten up and fly right and you too could become a beautiful butterfly and um fly, right Join my 3 emails a year newsletter Prizes FreeContent..
