A book made for travelling
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!
