Learn over 200 words with The Very Hungry Caterpillar and other favorite friends from the World of Eric Carle. From food and clothes to animals and feelings, this is the perfect way for little ones to learn what they need to navigate their busy worlds. Bright, colorful artwork from Eric Carle and clear type makes learning fun, and a spread at the end invites children to remember all the words they have read.
You're probably familiar with Eric Carle's colorful picture books and art style. He has given us The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Grouchy Ladybug, The Mixed-Up Chameleon, and many, many more wonderful books, all in his iconic style.
Eric Carle's Book of Many Things is a collection of over 200 'first words' paired with beautiful and colorful artwork to represent each one! The things in this book are split into 5 major categories; Things You See, Things You Eat, Things You Learn, Colorful Things, and Things About You.
A lot of the artwork that accompanies the words in this book are ones we (personally) are familiar with from previous Carle books, which made this a friendly and comfortable transition from listening to reading along and learning separate words.
The very back of the book has a full-page spread of the pictures shown throughout this book without the words so that children can test their memory!
