Book Activity: The Very Hungry Caterpillar

I'll be honest. TVHC may be my favorite children's book of all time. That caterpillar is so stinking cute! It is the first flannel story I shared with a group of children after becoming a librarian. Unfortunately, Bobo doesn't share my enthusiasm for the story. So I brought in reinforcements...

After we shared the story, we got out the caterpillar that I brought home from work. He lives in my office! Bobo re-told the story by slipping the food into the little pockets on the sides of the toy. Then, we played with the wooden food, sorting, counting and imagining. There may be hope, yet!

  1. What a fun activity! Just wondering where you got your wooden fruit. I am looking for some and wasn't sure of the best place to look. Thanks!

    1. I found it at our local antique store/flea market. I think people used to use them as decoration in the 70s?

  2. I love how our center activities! What a fun way to explore a book!
