Cerita ulat hijau yang kelaparan

Pernah coba ceritain konsep metamorfosis ke anak umur 3 tahun?

Iya.. metamorfosis, proses perubahan ulat jadi kepompong dan akhirnya berubah jadi kupu-kupu, yang biasanya baru diajarin sekolahan waktu SD / SMP 😅

Kalau saya pribadi merasa proses metamorfosis agak rumit dan belum waktunya dijelaskan ke anak-anak

Tapi.. Eric Carle, yang bikin buku berjudul “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” punya cara yang ajaib buat jelasin konsep ini

Dia bisa jelasin metamorfosis dengan cerita yang saangat sederhana dan gampang banget dipahami anak-anak

Mulai dari fase telur, menetas jadi ulat mungil dan cerita berlanjut terus.. sampai dia berubah jadi kupu-kupu yang berwarna-warni.

Selain cerita dan gambar yang menarik, buku ini juga punya halaman yang berlubang, seakan-akan kayak dimakan si ulat

Ada 1 apel yang berlubang..

Selanjutnya ada 2 buah pir yang berlubang,

Terus ada 3 buah plum yang berlubang

Jadi sambil cerita, si kecil juga bisa belajar berhitung lho 👏

Buku ini berhasil menimbun 3.700+ review dengan 4.5 / 5 bintang dari para mommies di UK dan USA, ini dia beberapa komentar mereka

“My toddler loves this book! He likes naming all the food that the caterpillar eat.”

“I saw this at a local store and handed it to my 2 (now 3) yr old bc he loves caterpillars.. I think a big part of it because on his tablet they are always eating and he loves to eat, especially fruits. He opened it up and started telling me the story! Apparently he had learned the whole book by watching videos on his tablet. Anyway I bought it here and now he reads it to me at night lol I will also read it to him and change words in it and he will laugh and tell me noooooo and tell me the correct word or phrase. It is simple and fun, and also incorporates counting. It’s a great classic.”

My daughters still bit young but loves the pictures as much as i did….hopefully she’ll one day too look back and smile about reading this with us. Real must have for any book collection!”

Sayangnya ukuran buku The Very Hungry Caterpillar kurang standar, dia lebih kecil dibanding board book lain, kalau biasanya boardbook besarnya 21 cm x 21 cm, buku ini cuma 18 cm x 13 cm.

Alhamdulillah saya nemu video authornya lagi mendongeng buku ini, link videonya => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkYmvxP0AJI
