This was a book when it first came out and in my opinion, still is. Any child would appreciate the book and a little hungry caterpillar toy to accompany it. You can find the stuffed animals in stores but this one is much more special because it is made by a loved one.

Im a retired childrens librarian, so I can attest to the Hungry, Hungry Caterpillar being one of the most popular books in the Childrens Section. When we read aloud to the wee ones, we always tried to have a prop to help illustrate the story. Im going to make a least one for the library, and some more for my own grandkids. I especially love the alternate color scheme, too.
