2/27/19 Celebrate The Very Hungry Caterpillar's birthday with us!

A Note From Eric Carle - Dear Friends, - The Very Hungry Caterpillar is turning 50 and I will be 90! It is one of the joys of my life that my book, first published in 1969, continues to delight readers of all ages around the world. China, Croatia, Israel, Egypt, Greece, Japan, Germany, Spain, Russia, Mongolia–all over the planet, children and teachers and parents and grandparents and librarians are reading my story and turning the pages, putting a tiny finger through the hole in a strawberry or a pear, and enjoying the bright, colorful wings of the butterfly when it appears. I am very, very grateful to every single reader and friend of the caterpillar for these wonderful years together. A golden anniversary for the caterpillar and the butterfly. Thank you to all, and here’s to 50 more! – Eric Carle
