From Shapes/Colors to Fractions~

especially The Very Hungry Caterpillar for many reasons...

~ learning about insects
~ repetitive text for young readers, etc...

While reading, we noticed lots of colors and shapes in the illustrations 
so we pulled a couple of other books to read
then made our own books {Like Amelia} to be just like Eric Carle~
