Carlos the Caterpillar Silver Medal winner, Best Book Series - Fiction (Picture Book) category in 2013 Moonbeam Children's Book Awards
Carlos is a cute caterpillar who loves to eat! He goes out every day to eat lovely green leaves. One day, after meeting Andrea the Ant, he bites off a bit more than he can chew!
Carlos the Caterpillar is the first book from a series of five books written about insects and creatures that you find in your backyard or on your balcony. The books are set in suburban Australia. Caterpillars, ants, bees, blue-tongue lizards and even slugs and aphids are characters in the books.
The five books have been specifically developed for parents to help preschool children get ready to read in a fun, relaxed way. The main focus of the wording in each story is to teach children Phonological Awareness skills - the ability to hear, say and play with sounds in words and sentences. Activities to support the books are provided on the website www.gettingreadytoread.com
