Your little caterpillar deserves every chance to succeed. Eric Carle's Hungry Caterpillar Play School is specifically designed to give young children every advantage they need in math, spelling, reading, writing, science, nature studies & creative arts. Help your child get ahead and school-ready with internationally recognized early learning goals.

Learning should be fun! We've made sure your child's experience is filled with wonder and humor, as well as leveraging the most up to date best practices in children's education.

EVERYTHING YOUR PRESCHOOLER NEEDS IN ONE APP:

• SHAPES AND COLORS: Prepare children for understanding math, art, reading & writing.

• ABC SECTION: Establishes the building blocks for reading success. Learn about the letters of the alphabet & how they join together to make words.

• 123 SECTION: Guides kids through every concept they need to learn to set them up for math proficiency. Repetition is key, so we’ve specifically designed this section to be different every time.

• ART SECTION: Expand your child’s imagination and encourage artistic expression. Budding artists can draw, paint, color, design & create in unique ways: Paint or cut out collages.

• PUZZLES: Age appropriate puzzles are so important in childhood development. Jigsaws teach children to use their own minds to figure out how to solve problems.

• One of the best ways to encourage your child to read, is to read to them. LEARN ABOUT THE WORLD BOOKS are engaging non-fiction titles specifically tailored for young children. These books are read aloud to your child & feature themes of nature, science & art.

• LEARN TO READ BOOKS are a tailored reading experience guiding children through the early reading levels. These titles are designed for independent reading but if your readers encounter a word they don’t know, they can tap on that word & it will be read aloud. These interactive books encourage kids to learn at their own pace.

• NEW SPECIAL 50th ANNIVERSARY SECTION: A very special book featuring Eric Carle's most beloved characters. 10 Little Rubber Ducks video. A special message from Eric Carle.

• Subjects are supported & enhanced by SONGS & VIDEOS to deepen your child's learning. Songs are a proven learning tool used by teachers all over the world.
