Eric Carle is a household name that even my two-year-old recognizes. From the Very Hungry Caterpillar, to Brown Bear, Brown Bear we have a collection of Eric Carle books that have grown with my children as they learn about concepts, animals, colors, shapes and sizes. Recently, the Eric Carle collection just got bigger as they added two items that boast the beautiful colorful illustrations of Eric Carle with the educational value you have grown to love and count on.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar String Alongs are a set of 10 mini books all connected by one long string. Each book has its own theme such as shapes, numbers and colors. They pictures are bright, cheery and the size of the books make them perfect for chubby little fingers to grip and flip through. I love how the String Alongbooks fall back onto the string so easily and my toddler enjoyed stringing the books just as she does with her wooden bead sets. She even took a link hook and connected (with the help of big brother) the set of mini books to her baby stroller so she can tote them with her. I love that I can toss a few in my bag and have them ready for long waits, to use as a redirection or to steal a few quiet minutes in the car while waiting to pick up my son from school. The String Alongs can be found on Amazon and retail for approximately $15.
