I try to read to Cupar every night. Sometimes he’s too tired and falls asleep as soon as he gets into bed, and sometimes he just wants to play with his fire engines, but most of the time we manage it.

The Very Hungry C
Everybody loves The Very Hungry Caterpillar! This wonderful, classic always makes Cupar smile. His favo
