Eric Carle writes about the importance of eating healthy foods and avoiding junk foods. Children are able to visualize the healthy foods and the connections to making good food choices. There are many colors and a variety of shapes that introduce knew knowledge to young children. Math is also involved because the caterpillar eats more food each time he travels. There are many lesson plans that could be done by using this book.

Classic childrens book, one of my favorites. This book is bright, colorful, and interactive. The illustrations are colorful and abstract. It is about a caterpillar that eats a lot of different food until it becomes a butterfly.
