It wasn’t until I was putting together Max’s nursery this weekend that I realized just how many Eric Carle books we’ve collected over the years. While we love them all, my favorite is still The Very Hungry Caterpiillar. Maybe it’s because I can remember reading this book as a child. Or maybe it’s because I can relate to eating until your belly hurts. No matter the cause, I’m not alone in my adoration of the book. Its popularity, more than 40 years after it was originally published, is obvious by the fact that the iconic caterpillar now graces everything from children’s bedding to night lights to fabulous gear for school.
