Forty years later and still a bestseller

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is a book I first encountered during story time in kindergarten. I was happy to pick it up again recently – in board book version this time – to read to my son. I knew it was a classic, but had no idea that it has been published in 47 languages, as the Telegraph reports, and is currently purchased at the rate of one copy every thirty seconds.

  1. I think I don’t get tired of reading it either…so it must be good. Some kids books get old after awhile. Imagine books for kids that are older than us. 🙂
