I've bought this before, although not at quite a good price. This is a lovely gift set. Really nice quality. The Very Hungry Caterpillar: Book and Toy gift set is on offer at Amazon for £5.42, marked down from £10.99. That's a 57% saving on the RRP.
When my son was born, I was given a copy of the Very Hungry Caterpillar by a friend who lives in Chicago. I was really a bit surprised. What sort of present was that for a newborn? But it is amazing how early on they like to look at things, and even if he couldn't understand what I was saying he loved to hear my voice. The bright colours in the book attracted him no end, and the lovely storyline was one I never minded repeating over and over!
Eric Carle's classic tale teaches children about numbers, days of the week and time as the newly hatched (and very hungry!) caterpillar munches his way through die-cut pages. This particular gift set contains a sturdy board book edition of this bestselling picture book and an adorable soft toy.
The board book comes in handy in a lot of ways. I remember my son loved gumming on his. It can take a lot of soggy muching by a little one!
