Our Own Caterpillar Book

We made our own
Very Hungry Caterpillar Book!

We used our Caterpillar from last week
to make the book come alive.

I used construction paper and
wrote the words from Eric Carle classic.
I drew pictures to match.
I got this idea from my Mother-in law
Who also teaches Kindergarten.
I never had enough guts to try it out with 25 six year olds!

Then Miss S. illustrated the book.

We use markers, dot markers, glitter and paint. 

I cut a hole in each page so she could
string the caterpillar through each page.

It was fun listening to her read the book
As she pulled the caterpillar through each hole.

I might regret the glitter later,
but that stuff makes everything look better!

Maybe I'll put it on my face the next time I feel a little drab.



  1. How totally awesome is that?! I love it!!

    I'm with you though...I'd never attempt that with a whole class of young'ns!

  2. What an adorable idea- yay Emma! You and Mae both did an awesome job. I'm gonna have to do that with Cami next year when she can illustrate a little easier. :) What a fun keepsake.

  3. I love how all the fun stuff you do with Mae:) I swear that I'm just treading water when I have London and Aleksah-you have two all the time and you rock it! We missed you guys when you had to leave early Friday. Lets plan another get together soon so we can actually talk.

  4. What a fun interactive book! We just worked with the very hungry caterpillar this past week. Love that book!

    I would love for you to link up on my new Kids Craft & Educational type linky party - The Sunday Showcase which just started today!

  6. I LOVE the book! It`s brilliant!!!

  7. What a fantastic idea! I love how she can read and play at the same time.

  8. Adorable and I love the egg carton caterpillar climbing through the pages!
