When I was five years old, one of my favorite books was The Very Hungry Caterpillar (and it's still a favorite). The illustrations are captivating; they are bright. The text is predictable. Plus, it's educational; The Very Hungry Caterpillar teaches different foods (mostly fruits and junk foods), the days of the week, how to count to five, and how a caterpillar becomes a butterfly. The only thing I dislike about this book is a butterfly comes from a chrysalis (NOT a cocoon), and yes, I usually change the word to chrysalis when reading it to my children.
