My nephew, Berkeley, is 1 year and 3 months old. Every time I see him, he keeps getting bigger and bigger. Soon I’ll be the shrimp!
Since his parents don’t visit my blog and he’s much too young to be looking up reviews (hehe), I feel pretty safe posting this.
Here’s what I got my nephew for Christmas! Remember The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle? I consider this to be a children’s classic book!
The caterpillar passes by leaves and other things, eating its way through everything. The book has holes to make it fun for kids.
This particular version comes with a plush toy, so my nephew will be able to play along. Unfortunately, though, the holes in the book aren’t big enough for the caterpillar plush toy to go through. (I didn’t see that edition or I would’ve gotten it.)
It’s my mission to build up Berkeley’s home library because books play an important part in a child’s education. I want him to look back on his collection from Aunt Mary and think that it’s kick-ass. I’m going to get him as many old classics as well as the modern ones.
Another reason why I chose The Very Hungry Caterpillar is that Berkeley is a really fussy eater. So I’m sure my brother and my sister-in-law are going to appreciate this since the book encourages eating. We’ll see if this psychology works!
