One of my favorite books as a child was Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar ($9.99 on Amazon). Chloe was obsessed with it as well and we had both the English and French versions of the book. Now, this beloved, classic children's book is coming out with an e-book version! It's a perfect way for kids to take it on trips on your tablet or to pick up and read (instead of playing apps) on your iPhone.
Did you know that the The Very Hungry Caterpillar is published in 62 languages in a variety of formats including hardcover, board book, oversized board book, Spanish, bilingual, braille, and now e-book! More than 44 million copies of the book have sold worldwide. Today, every 30 seconds, somewhere in the world, a copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar is sold.
Also don't forget, March 20th is "The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day," where every year on this first day of spring teachers, librarians, booksellers, and fans of the book around the country are encouraged to read and celebrate the metamorphosis of this eager, insatiable caterpillar, whose mystical transformation has entertained and enchanted generation after generation of young readers. Chloe and I celebrated this in 2014 at Chronicle Books (see previous post).
Pre-order this the e-book version of The Very Hungry Caterpillar on Amazon. This e-book will be released on November 22, 2016.
