The Very Hungry Caterpillar

By following this caterpillar, children will learn how long a caterpillar is, what color he is, and how thick he is. They will also learn what a caterpillar likes to eat and how much food they eat. They will also discover that the very hungry caterpillar turns into a beautiful butterfly by turning into a cocoon first.

Where the Wild Things are
Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s book Where the Wild Things Are was published in 1963 and went on to win the Caldecott Medal. This book tells the story of Max, a boy who is sent to his room without dinner as punishment for being naughty. In his anger, he creates a world filled with monsters and becomes king of the Wild Things.
Max has many adventures with his new monster friends, including a wild rumpus that starts when Max arrives at the island of Whiskers-and-Sniffer, Furry-Breeches, Hoppler-Toppler, and Henry-the-Bear. When he returns to his bedroom from these adventures, he finds that dinner is waiting for him—and it hasn’t even gotten cold yet!
This book provides an excellent lesson about what happens when we let our emotions get out of control. It also shows how important it is for all kids—even those who might be prone to fits of anger like Max—to find positive outlets for their emotions through play and imagination.

These books will teach your children and help them grow.
Reading is one of the most important ways that your child can learn and develop. Not only will they be able to learn important skills like literacy, but they’ll also be able to grow intellectually. Reading can help your child understand other people and the world around them. It also helps them do better in school by improving their vocabulary and comprehension skills, so you can help your child excel in various subjects by encouraging them to read more often.
Reading aloud to children regularly helps improve their language development, as well as their ability to communicate with others effectively when they get older. This will benefit them in both schools and out in life later on down the road because communication is such an important skill for success!
