This is one of my all time favorite books. This story is simple yet teaches several different topics. It’s a counting book while also teaching the days of the week making it the perfect math book. It is also a great science book that teaches the life cycle of Caterpillar. And let’s be honest, we have all had the same life lesson of eating way too much and getting a stomach ache. So let’s break out that Salad spinner (no lettuce needed) and create some memories and art!
