Celebrate Spring and Eric Carle!
Celebrate the first day of Spring on Thursday, March 20th, and the 45th Anniversary of the children's book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar"! Written in 1969 by Eric Carle, this all time favorite story follows the hungry caterpillar as it grows from egg to cocoon to a beautiful butterly!
The recipient of numerous awards for children’s literature, Eric Carle illustrates his books using the art of collage! Open any one of his more than 70 books and you’ll instantly recognize his unique and distinctive illustrations. The cutting and layering of his hand-painted papers along with the added dimension of die-cut pages, twinkling lights and lifelike sounds of a cricket’s song will delight readers of all ages over and over again!
