The Very Hungry Caterpillar: Candle #6

Just got The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle from the library today. I had no idea that this children's book had been around as long as I have. I haven't read it since my son was small (about 14-15 years ago), but decided to add this to Birth Year Reading Challeng list when I couldn't find the book of poetry that was on the Wikipedia list for books of 1969.

Of course, this was a quick read--but it was fun. Just to enjoy the pictures and the brief story of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. And to remember the days when my son was still small enough to fit on my lap and have his mom read to him.
