Our weekly field trip: The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art
It's a very hungry caterpillar. And this year it turns 50. But that's nothing compared to its creator who in a few days will count 90 candles on his birthday cake. Eric Carle is a legend in the picture book category. And if for some reason you don't know his name you almost certainly are well acquainted with his most famous creation – The Very Hungry Caterpillar. It's a book that every kid under, say 50 or so, would recognize it in a heartbeat.
