The Very Hungry Caterpillar on Google


I *love* today’s Google Logo by Eric Carle. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of Ella’s favorite books and bedtime stories to watch on DVD.

  1. Ah this is great.
    Remember reading this book so many times as a child.
    What made them choose this theme?

  2. Saw that today, too, and it made me smile! Wow, I haven’t read that book in ages.

  3. It’s the caterpillar’s birthday too :-)

  4. I think I read that book more than any other to my son, Ruben, growing up in Amsterdam. Now that I’m back in the U.S. I coordinate a SMART reading program in my neighborhood grade school. I see The Very Hungry Caterpillar being read daily – Eric Carle’s work is simple and creative, and loved by millions – i LOVE this new “look!!”
