Eric Carle’s 5 Very Lovely Books

We've all heard of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, but how many of us knew that it came from a series of five 'Very' books by Eric Carle. Click on the title link to visit Eric's blog and read about his inspiration.
We have recently been given The Very Busy Spider which is a lovely touchy feely book, with a raised spider web thread, fly and spider, about a spider building a web and encountering farmyard animals in the process. I feel I should collect the other 3: The Very Quiet Cricket, The Very Lonely Firefly and The Very Clumsy Click Beetle. All available on amazon.com for appropriately about a fiver each.

Mr Seahorse as well! It's bizarrely funny about male parents and fish behaviour. There's something for everyone.
