Happy Birthday to our Favorite Caterpillar!

Books have birthdays, too. And this year Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar is 40 years old. That's right -- Carle's caterpillar first ate his way through all those goodies in 1969 -- probably before some of your parents were even born!

Eric Carle himself, who has written and/or illustrated over 40 books for children, celebrates his 80th birthday this year. You can read more about Eric Carle at his official website and you might also enjoy reading his blog.

But the best thing to do? Visit the library and check out some of his WONDERFUL books. You can find a complete list of all the Eric Carle books SAPL owns by performing a simple author search in the library catalog.
