Happy Birthday, Eric Carle!

Today is Eric Carle's Birthday and we are celebrating with a "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" lunch!

 This is our well loved copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar..

This book has been a longstanding favorite - first my favorite book when I was little - and now my kids' favorite! They can never hear enough of the little caterpillar eating through all this food until he had a stomachache.

  • a watermelon caterpillar
  • an eaten apple slice
  • and eaten strawberry
  • an eaten watermelon
  • an eaten cheese stick
  • an eaten hot dog and 
  • an eaten piece of pie made out of a peanut butter sandwich

Happy Birthday, Eric Carle!
