The Children’s Book Review | February 19, 2014
2014 marks the 45th anniversary of Eric Carle’s pre-school classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. The anniversary will be officially celebrated on the annual “Very Hungry Caterpillar Day” which takes place every year on the first day of spring (March 20th).
In a simply elegant tale of metamorphosis, Carle’s distinct artwork is colorful and child-centric and combines perfectly with innovative page cuts, familiar concepts (counting, days of the week, food) and natural curiosity of children. It’s no wonder that we are all “still hungry” for this classic, 45 years later. Wow!
