Very Hungry Caterpillar Celebrations At Kiddi Caru Exeter

7th September 2017 – Kiddi Caru Day Nursery and Preschool Sowton, Exeter

 The children and staff at Exeter’s Kiddi Caru day nursery have been celebrating one of their favourite books – The Very Hungry Caterpillar - as part of the company’s annual Book Week.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, the Eric Carle book first published in 1969, has enthralled children for generations with its creative storyline and iconic illustrations. As well as reading the book, the children and staff enjoyed caterpillar journeys in the garden, butterfly painting, fruit printing, talking and researching about the life-cycle of a caterpillar as well as food tasting.

David Lord, Nursery Manager, said: “The children love lots of books but The Very Hungry Caterpillar is always a firm favourite and they were very excited about doing a whole week of caterpillar inspired activities. As well as being a great story for introducing numbers and different colours, there are a number of themes in the book that appeal to young children and I think that’s why it is as popular today as when it was first published.”
