Happy Birthday to The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

2014 marks the 45th anniversary of Eric Carle’s classic story for pre-schoolers, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

HungryCaterpillarYesterday it was The Very Hungry Caterpillar day and many bookstores, museums and libraries held special celebrations in honor of the caterpillar’s birthday.


In The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Eric Carle beautifully and simply shares the story of one of Nature’s most amazing transformations – from caterpillar to butterfly. Along the way, young readers also learn about the days of the week and numbers up to ten, and have a great deal of fun interacting with the different sized pages and holes!

We can highly recommend taking a look at the official Eric Carle website. Here you can find games and booklists, download craft activities, watch Eric at work creating his tissue paper collages and even listen to The Very Hungry Caterpillar read in seven different languages!
