My Caterpillar Says Meow

My son was enjoying the company of his Very Hungry Caterpillar doll…

Me: What will caterpillar say?

Son: I dono, caterpillar don’t talk!

Me: Well, if they can talk, what do you think he will say?

Son:  Uhhhh… Meow!

Me: Why Meow?

Son: Because it’s a CAT-erpillar!


My favorite early childhood book is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carl.   The book shows the stages of metamorphosis, teaches days of the week, numbers 1 to 5 in sequence, and pages are filled with bright cheerful  illustrations.

I gave my son a copy of this  book for his second birthday and he loves the story.   I went on the web to see what other story extensions I can do with him.
