My Comment:
             If a kid loves colorful pictures, he/she would sure love this book. If a kid loves flaps, he/she would sure be surprised by this book. If a kid loves nature, he/she would sure read this book, again and again. If a kid want to play with a book, he/she would peek through the small holes in this book. Well, what's not in this classic book, that a child adores?

          As a parent, if you want a moral, you can always say "See, the caterpillar ate junk food and got stomach ache". If you want to teach science to your kid, you can introduce the life cycle of butterfly. If you prefer maths, there are counts of fruits. If you want more, there are days of the week, mentioned in each page. 

         Even without considering all this, this book is a brightly illustrated, delightfully narrated wonder. So, if you wish for a happy reading time with your kid, this classic book is always there.
