Picture Books We Love

Celebrate Very Hungry Caterpillar Day with Us!


Today is the 45th anniversary of one of our favorite picture books, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle! Happily, it's also the first day of Spring!

If that's not enough to make you smile, you may want to watch this quick video of Eric Carle talking about the Caterpillar's birthday or look at this picture of Eric Carle in Caterpillar antenna (to be available soon for sale in The Carle Bookshop!). Too cute!

To help us celebrate, from today until Sunday, March 23rd, head on over to our online Shop where you can save 15% off your entire order! Join the Museum, if you haven't already, and you can save 30%. Just remember to use coupon code VHCDAY14 at checkout. If you're in the area on Sunday, stop by The Carle for a full day of Caterpillar fun! I hope to see some of you here on Sunday!
