The Very Hungry Caterpillar is 40 Years old

This year marks the 40th anniversary of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, which was published in 1969 and in honor of the 40th anniversary of Eric Carle’s much beloved children’s book, today has been deemed “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” Day.

This was something special that Eric Carle did for Google.

We love Eric Carle books. He is a great childrens author with about 70 books to his name. One of my son’s favorites is The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Eric’s books are the best they always have an educational element to the books which makes learning fun for kids. The illustrations are bright and colorful.

You can check out The Penguin Group for my great things. There is a video of Eric on the site.

Happy Anniversary The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Happy 80th Birthday wishes to Eric Carle. May you continue to write many more great children books.
