Kids In Doodles: Bonding With Our Favorite Book

One of the things I am thankful for is that my kids have seemed to inherit my love for reading.  Their day would not be complete without reading a book.  When I’m laden with housework, they get books from the shelf and content themselves with just browsing the pictures. 

One of their favorites is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.  We’ve read it so many times that Ate Jade can already tell the story all by herself.  She can’t really read the words yet but she already knows the story by heart. Here she is reading the book to little Jakei:


Since they love the book so much, we also used it as a theme for one of our PLAYhouse preSCHOOL sessions.


It may get crazy at times having two toddlers in the house but seeing them work, play and learn together more than makes up for it.


  1. I have not heard of the Hungry Caterpillar yet but it’s always nice to learn about books other moms read to their kids. Hopefully it has a kindle version 🙂

    • The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a wonderful book! When we used it for our PLAYhouse preSCHOOL sessions, we were able to use it as a springboard for Math, Language and Science. You should also check out other books by Eric Carle. Not sure if they have a kindle version though.

  2. mum have heard about that book, but she has not actually bought me one. maybe she would this year! ^_^

    it must’ve been fun having ate jade read to little jakei! + your playhouse preschool also sounds like fun! ^_^

    thanks for joining!

  3. having two kids at home myself, i couldn’t agree more. i am happy that my kids get to learn about sharing, and how to treat others nicely from each other.

  4. Kawaii kido! My kids loves The Very Hungry Caterpillar too and it’s a popular book here in Japan. We bought them a memory game which my kids enjoyed a lot.^_^

    Thank you very much for dropping by!

    Take care!
