A Very Hungry Caterpillar Tea Party {With Story Stones}

I'd be very surprised if you told me that your child didn't own a copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar (and if they don't I insist you get one!). It's one of my absolute favourites with so many opportunities for early learning. The clever way that Eric Carle integrates concepts of days of the week, numbers, healthy/unhealthy food as well as the life cycle of a caterpillar is like no other early childhood text.

So when Johanna from Hello Pear asked me if I would like to help her launch her 'Very Hungry Caterpillar' story stones, of course I said YES!

Kindly gifted for the purpose of this review. Not sponsored.
Long time readers may recall that I'm a brand rep for Hello Pear, and I previously featured Johanna's beautiful and handmade alphablocks on the blog. The hours of work and attention to detail that she puts into her products is second to none. There's something really special about buying a handmade product. Have you seen this quote floating around the web? (I tried finding the original source but I couldn't track them down... if you know where it came from please let me know!)

"When you buy from a small business, an actual real person does a little happy dance."
Story stones are a beautiful tactile experience allowing young children to connect with nature. The Very Hungry Caterpillar set are ideal to retell the story in order, either follow along with the book or recall from memory what the caterpillar had to eat (it gets a bit tricky to remember the Saturday foods in order - I challenge you to see if you can do it!).
