The Very Hungry Caterpillar Giveaway


Can you believe that 2014 is the 45th Anniversary of Eric Carle's beloved book,  The Very Hungry Caterpillar?  It is just amazing to me how long this book has been around.
 
 "Since its publication in 1969, 36 million copies of the book have sold worldwide and it has been published in 55 languages. That year the book was also named one of the best children’s books of the year by The New York Times, and it has since become a beloved, must-own classic. Today, every 30 seconds, somewhere in the world, a copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar is sold." 

Why do I love the book?
I love Eric Carle books because they are creative and the pictures are gorgeous.  I especially love reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar every Spring because we discuss butterflies and life cycles.  It fits so perfect into our curriculum and my students always love the book.
To celebrate the 45th anniversay, one lucky reader will win:

Two limited edition anniversary totes
&
Two copies of The Very Hungry Caterpillar board book 

(1 to keep, 1 to share)! 
 
I just love Eric Carle.Click {here} for more details about the anniversary and some great activities, links, and more for your classroom!
