Today is the first day of spring. It is also Very Hungry Caterpillar Day to commemorate the children’s author, Eric Carle. He is one of my all-time favorite children’s authors.
So, to celebrate, I am going to share with you a huge collection of wonderful The Very Hungry Caterpillar ideas that you can use to teach your child about this author and this darling story- just one of my favorites. (Want more book activities for kids? I have done over 100!)
