This week marked the 45th anniversary of the Hungry Caterpillar. I love reading this book with pumpkin. She flips through the pages quickly though because her favorite part is putting her finger in the holes on the pages.
We could not find a local celebration at a school or library, so instead I purchased cupcakes from Sierra at Sweet Art Bake Shop. She also did pumpkin’s one year smash cake. I love her work and she’s the first person I think of when I want to get some treats.
The cupcakes came out great! I brought them to a local babywearing meetup for the babies and moms to enjoy. Everyone loved them! I loved hearing the stories from some moms about sharing the Hungry Caterpillar with their babies.
If you have never heard of the Hungry Caterpillar, check out the YouTube video below of author Eric Carle reading his book. If your toddler loves the book as much as mine does, there are also quite a few sites that have great arts and crafts based on the story.
Have fun and always share the love of reading with your babies!
