Happy 40th Birthday to Very Hungry Caterpillar

The Very Hungry Caterpillar - B

I actually met Eric Carle about 15 years ago.

He looked like a fun Grandpa then and he still does.

I have a picture of the two of us in my 

autographed copy of A Very Hungry Caterpillar.

His board books were the first books 

that I bought for my grandchildren.

Board books are great!

They are small enough to fit in small hands 

and they cannot be destroyed.

I love all of Eric Carle's books.

There is always a surprise inside!

Here's a great video featuring Eric Carle, author and 

illustrator, talking about his classic book, 

The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
