Book Bucket List | The Very Hungry Caterpillar

As the staff at the Tracy Library already know, one of my favorite picture books is Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  I carried this book around everywhere as a kid, and I think the cover was even on one of my birthday cakes once. So this week, I'm going to feature the classic and ever so cool books by Eric Carle.  Eric Carle was "discovered" by author Bill Martin Jr after Martin saw an advertisement Carle had drawn.  They collaborated on Martin's Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see? and then Carle published his first book, 1, 2, 3 to the Zoo.  Carle went on to publish what are considered to be some of the best and well-known children's picture books.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar follows the life of a newly hatched caterpillar on his way to becoming a butterfly.  That's it!  Check out the author reading this below.

We have a lot of Eric Carle's other books in our system including:
