From the list on counting for young children.
Who am I?
I've written more than 100 books including the counting books Dinner at the Panda Palace (HarperCollins / PBS StoryTime) and Dozens of Dachshunds (Bloomsbury / Scholastic Book Clubs). I also write easy readers such as Stomp! (Ready-to-Read / JLG) and early chapter books including the Our Principal series and, with Magic School Bus author Joanna Cole, The Adventures of Allie and Amy series. As a former early childhood teacher and children's book editor, I'm a big fan of counting books and look forward to writing – and reading – many more.
Stephanie's book list on counting for young children
Discover why each book is one of Stephanie's favorite books.
Why did Stephanie love this book?
On Monday, a tiny, very hungry caterpillar ate through one apple.
"But he was still hungry."
On Tuesday, he ate through two pears, on Wednesday, three plums, and so on through the week.
When he gets to Saturday, he eats way too much, starting with one piece of chocolate cake and ending with one slice of watermelon.
That night he has a stomach ache! The caterpillar recovers on Sunday and, no longer tiny and no longer hungry, he builds a small house around himself called a cocoon.
In time, he becomes a beautiful butterfly.
With cutout pages and gorgeous Eric Carle art, this book is a joy to share with young children.
