The 40 Year Old Caterpillar

Eric Carle's "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" turned 40.

Even Google paid homage to that hungry caterpillar:
"The Very Hungry Caterpillar" is one of many Eric Carle books that my children have in their library. We were fortunate enough to visit the Eric Carlie Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts back in 2006 when my sister lived in Easthampton, MA. The kids had a blast in the art lab and Adam & I enjoyed looking at the different exhibits. It was fun to see the illustrations from quite a few of the books that he and I enjoyed when we were little. It truly is a neat place to visit!

Eric Carle's books are, in my opinion, an essential part of any childhood library. His stories convey a message and the brightly colored illustrations engage the reader. You don't get tired of reading his stories and they seem to find a special place in your heart -- so you will never forget them.
Happy birthday, Mr. Caterpillar, and thank you to Eric Carle for giving us such a classic book that will surely be treasured for 40 (and more!) years to come!
