I stumbled across some animated books on YouTube today with help from Learning Parade and had to share them! They are very well done and our kids are loving them!

This one child watching lead to 3 kids watching….

And finally to all four kids watching…

Here are links to some of the ones we love:

  • Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
  • Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
  • Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
  • Rosie’s Walk by Pat Hutchins
  • Goodnight Gorilla by Eric Carle
  • Papa Please Get the Moon For Me by Eric Carle
  • The Mixed Up Chameleon by Eric Carle
  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

I made a fun hands on activity to go along with The Very Hungry Caterpillar Book! Here’s the post with the Letter C Activities, scroll down to the bottom to see how I used the Hungry Caterpillar activity. You can download the Hungry Caterpillar cards here!

  • The Very Quiet Cricket by Eric Carle
  • Owl Babies by Martin Waddell

Hope you enjoy!


  1. Schmobes: I cut out the cards, then hole punched them. I provided my kids with a piece of yarn and as we read the story, they laced the correct card onto the string. When we got to the end and the caterpillar goes into his coccoon, I had them put their laced cards into an envelope. I carefully swapped this envelope out with one that had the butterfly pieces in it. When they reached into pull out their caterpillar they got a butterfly!
