A brilliant DVD. The short stories are gently animated versions of the books with lovely classical music (that has not been 'simplified' for babies as with so many of these things) and the narrators are both well respected poets and do an excellent job. I must have watched this with my son hundreds of times now. Because it follows a narrative, has classical music and illustrations that are so true to the books it does not feel like television. Even for parents who aren't keen on letting kids watch TV this is a happy compromise.
We have this already and it is my 2 year old daughters favourite bedtime watch. The artwork is totally true to Eric Carle and the animation brings the stories to life. I love the classic music. I am buying it for my friends' children now.
Five beautiful stories set to wonderful animation as in the books, and relaxing classical music. A must for any lover of the very hungry caterpillar book. Also makes a lovely childs birthday present. Five star recommended!!!!
