What Jordan is Reading.

Actually, the title of this should be, what Jordan is making me read to him over and over again. This week’s hit is Eric Carle‘s The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Eric Carle

Right now, we’re stuck reading the section where the caterpillar eats through the food.  I guess I have to read the book something on the order of 4 to 5 times before I have to pry it from his hands and move on to something else.  At the end of the book, the caterpillar turns into a beautiful butterfly and every time it happens, Jordan softly exclaims “wooow.” Now as far as I know, Jordan has never seen a real butterfly, but he certainly is impressed by Eric Carle’s rendition of one.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the book.
