Eric Carle turned the traditional picture book into an interactive object by integrating holes and shortened pages, according to the Eric Carle Museum. “It’s a book you can play with, a toy you can read,” Carle explained about The Very Hungry Caterpillar. He designed it for toddlers and preschoolers, an audience under-recognized by the publishing industry at the time. A new era for picture books was born.
In honor of this wonderful book, please come to our a special reading of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, other books by Eric Carle, crafts and activities, and Very Hungry Caterpillar cupcakes!
If you would like more information, please contact Youth Library Assistant David Lev at 541-947-6974 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you there!
