Book Review: Ten Little Caterpillars by Bill Martin Jr.
If you heard a squeal of delight in the library today, it wasn't coming from the children's area. It was coming from the back, where I finally got my hot little hands on Ten Little Caterpillars by Bill Martin Jr. and illustrated by Lois Ehlert.
I'm a Ehlert fanatic, so there is no surprise that I love this book. The big surprise was that I love it even more than its predecessors: Eating the Alphabet, Planting a Rainbow and Color Zoo. Bill Martin Jr. adds zest with his rhyming, lyrical text. From the beautiful cover to the last pages of large numbers accompanied by illustrations. It is the perfect storytime book.
