Now, I know you have heard of the books, but had you heard of the dvd? It was released several years ago, but I for one had never seen it until it was bought as a present for our two. It’s lovely! In addition to ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’, there are four other tales including ‘The Mixed Up Chameleon’ and ‘Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me’, and the animations are completely faithful to Eric Carle’s iconic illustrations.
They are narrated by Roger McGough and Juliet Stevenson, and frankly when a dvd is this beautiful I classify it as ‘Art and Education’ so I am (almost) guilt free when I stick the boys in front of it… and they both adore it!
