Love from The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a book written by Eric Carle, who wrote The Very Hungry Caterpillar, a book many parents will recognize. This book welcomes back that same caterpillar to tell children about love. This hardcover book is the size of a gift book, measuring 5 3/4 inches by 7 inches and has glossy paperback pages.
I was excited to receive this book for my kids but we were honestly disappointed with it. Based on the recommended age range for this book (3-5 years), this book should be good for them but it seems to be written for a much younger audience. Each set of pages only has a few words, along with the same types of pictures as in the original Very Hungry Caterpillar book and it only took us about a minute to read through it. The message behind the book is definitely cute but I think kids older than three would be more likely to become bored with it. We've only read it once and my kids haven't asked to read it again.
I think this is a cute book but it is marketed at an older audience than it should be. If the publisher were to print this as a board book instead, I think this would be a great book for babies and toddlers because of the more durable pages. Had we known more about the actual content, I wouldn't have purchased it for ourselves but we will keep it anyway and possibly give it to friends with younger kids.
