We have had this book since Imogen and Madeline were babies. The cover has been ripped off several times, pages scrunched, bent, folded in half, partially torn, fully torn from the book. Pages lost and found again were lovingly repaired so that all could enjoy the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Lately, Ivy and Noah have also been listening to this classic story…until today. Noah has attacked the book and I fear that it is beyond repair. The three big girls are VERY upset that their baby brother has gone to town on one of their favourites and are, as I type, trying to tape the shredded pages back together but I think I will have to retire said book. Maybe I will have to find one a little bit sturdier to get us through Noah’s toddler years.
