A Very Hungry Caterpillar is a story about a caterpillar who eats something new everyday. Each day the hungry caterpillar eats one more than he did the previous day. This story is placed at a 2.9 (2nd grade, 9th month) reading level from accelerated reader leveling system, but would be great to teach when teaching students how to count as well. A great activity for this book would be to engage this book in a math lesson in teaching students how to add and take away. You could also use this book to have students work on retelling the story and using their fine motor skills.
