This is my short poem for two voices to celebrate a favorite book of all times: The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle! This book has been bringing joy to homes and classrooms all around the world for the past 40 years! This poem is an imitation of a conversation that happens between a child and the reader....
This book never failed to impress children and adult alike as the story unfolds. Thanks Eric Carle!
