I recently purchased this sweet little board book. Everyone knows the Hungry Caterpillar (don't they?). I knew that my sister had been gifted this book early in her pregnancy - no need for me to double up! I did however spot the 'buggy' or 'pram' version at a local store. Perfect. It is small and light weigh. It attaches to your pram or cot with a bright red, stretchy coil. Each page contains a bright picture of a particular food the caterpillar munches through coupled with a single word like 'apple'.
I try to buy simple board books for Eva. Simple stories, single words or even no words paired with beautiful, bright illustrations. I haven't saved this book for her return... This one flew over to London to begin its life in the right place, right on her buggy!
Just a quick post to anyone who missed the news (I twittered, facebooked and SMSed it everywhere but forgot to blog)
Little EVA JEAN was born on the 11th of April. An Easter baby. The very best present that Easter Bunny could have delivered.
The family are doing well and Mum and Dad are over in London with them. I just have to wait a while to meet my niece in the flesh (have done so via skype so far).
And my heart grows...
