Feature & Follow # 56

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community. If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers. But you have to know, the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

This weeks question:

What were some of your favorite picture books as a kid?
If you have kids, what are your favorites to read to them?  

One of my favorite picture books which I have shared with my kids is:

The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Eric Carle

I love the way he eats his way through piles of food and then morphs into a beautiful Butterfly at the end.
When I read this book to my kids, I use my finger to animate the caterpillar. I even draw a face. They love it.

  6. I was probably the only kid alive NOT obsessed with Eric Carle, or whose parents weren't anyways. Don't think I even read that one more than once maybe as a kid! :( Plenty of other favorites though and what a super cute story about how you tell it to your kids! Old follower passing through.

  14. The Hungry C is a good one. I like when it gets to all the little individual flaps w/the fruits. And my kidlet likes to play w/the holes. =)

  15. I haven't seen The Hungry Caterpillar on this hop yet - but boy does it bring back memories! I loved it, great pick!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  16. I remember this one from when my younger brother was small. Great book! And I love that you animate the caterpillar for your kids! When my cousins and I were young I would read out loud to them and I had to give my characters voices. I called it reading with "spression" LOL! Have a great weekend Marilyn!!
