2009 marks the 40th anniversary of one of our favorite books, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. In honor of 40 years, there is a new pop-up edition available -- it looks very cute!
Amazon.com has a video segment featuring Eric Carle speaking about The Very Hungry Caterpillar and how he made the book. (The interview is delightful... don't miss it!) He says in the interview "I LOVE COLOR!" which makes me smile. Eric Carle turns 80 years old this year. Happy birthday Mr. Carle, and thank you for this very wonderful children's book!
P.S. Here's a link to Eric Carle's blog.
UPDATE April 6: I ordered a copy of the pop-up book but unfortunately it is fragile and I'm afraid it won't survive our boys' love. We prefer the board book version.
