Join us as we celebrate Very Hungry Caterpillar Day and the start of spring with a special storytime and art workshop!

  • Enjoy an interactive reading of Eric Carle’s beloved book The Very Hungry Caterpillar / La Oruga Muy Hambrienta in English and Spanish, led by translation scholar Tal Goldfajn and Carle Literacy Educator David Feinstein. Special thanks to the Spanish and Portuguese Program at UMass Amherst.


  • Learn how Eric Carle takes ideas, words, and pictures and turns them into the books we love. Learn about his creative process and watch a video of Eric creating a collage!



  • Create your own wearable art in a virtual workshop with Carle Art Educator Meg Nicoll as you turn paper into caterpillar-inspired costumes!
