The Very Hungry Caterpillar
This tactile picture book has been painstakingly hand-crafted using 34 different textured materials. Contours are explored as an added dimension of shapes through the use of multi-layered elements and embroidered elements. Textures are used to depict both objects and concepts through the usage of exquisite material. These books are for all children, including the visually impaired and children with special needs.
The brilliant illustrations, collages of specially prepared paper, and the cleverly die-cut pages show what the caterpillar ate on successive days, graphically introducing sets of up to ten objects and also the names of the days of the week in rotation, as well as telling the central story of the transformation of the caterpillar.
