The Very Hungry Caterpillar

I went to google today, and discovered that they've put up a special theme logo in honor of the 40th year of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle:

After the obligatory google search, I came upon this article about the logo.

All four of my children have been read this story. I had no idea that it was 40 years old. I certainly didn't know about it until I had kids of my own. Anyway, I sent an email about the article to my wife thinking she would enjoy this.

As it happened, child #4 was sitting with her when she clicked on the link. The above picture came up and he immediately said, "Da Vewy Hungwy Catapiwoh". I wish I could have been there to witness it. But, thinking about it, just warms my heart. Apparently, my 3.5 year old is as impressed with it as his parents are.

I saw this logo the other day too, but I also didn't realize the book was 40 years old. I remember it from when I was young, though. It's a fantastic book. How many other books can teach about eating healthy, numbers, days of the week and how a caterpillar can become a butterfly ALL IN THE SAME BOOK!!!??? I remember being really impressed that a caterpillar could actually eat holes in the book like he did. Ellie doesn't really like the book as much as I wish she did, but maybe she's just not quite old enough.

I missed the Very Hungry Caterpillar google logo! Eric Carle is such a great children's author I just love all of his books. I did get to see the Earth Day google logo which was pretty cool too.
