From An Old Friend: LOVE (From the Very Hungry Caterpillar) by Eric Carle
YOU ARE THE APPLE OF MY EYE.
In a return appearance of his beloved The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Eric Carle writes a love story to and for his readers, who are, he says, like the cherry atop the cake, the very knees of the bees, the ones who make sunlight shine bright, the stars twinkle, and the heart flutter like a flight of butterflies.
His most famous character, the Very Hungry Caterpillar appears on each page, from inside an apple and on top of a strawberry, and surrounded by stars, hearts and butterflies.
Eric Carle's Love from The Very Hungry Caterpillar (Grosset and Dunlap, 2015) is perfect as a Valentine or anytime when you want to say "I Love You" in a special way.
