One of my favorite books to read to the kids is Eric Carle’s “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”. Zoe and Miles have been less and less interested in it but I get excited when they find it after a while and ask me to read it to them. The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been making its mark in as a beloved character cherished by moms and toddler’s alike for generations. So when I found about about the 3rd Annual Very Hungry Caterpillar Day, celebrated on March 20 I had to let all of you know about it.
This year, the Very Hungry Caterpillar will be partnering with Pottery Barn Kids for some very special mommy and me time. On Sunday, March 20 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m., all Pottery Barn Kids stores will be hosting a series of free activities for families, which will include story time and a reading of the Very Hungry Caterpillar and his adventures into becoming a butterfly. There is a Pottery Barn Kids located in Bellsquare Mall in Downtown Bellevue for one. I think there is one in University Village too, but you should check to find a local Pottery Barn Kids for your area to be sure!
I hope you find this event as special as I do and encourage you to share it with other moms to attend this event and celebrate Very Hungry Caterpillar Day by letting their child experience one of the greatest childhood classics of all time.
