Family Literacy Bag for The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Just received this in my inbox this morning from CASLS (The Center for Applied Second Language Studies at the University of Oregon):


Eric Carle's classic picture book is celebrating 40 years of delighting young children and adults with its simple concepts and brilliantly colorful illustrations. Reading Rockets has created a new family literacy bag inspired by the Hungry Caterpillar — activities that invite parents and kids to explore together the book's themes (in English and Spanish).

If anyone has access to video conferencing at their school, join Louisiana and Jumpstart on October 8, 2009 as we read Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

This is our 4th year of using video conferencing to read to students all over the world.

We need adult and student readers, as well as, excited elementary student listeners to celebrate the joy of reading all over the globe!

This year, we plan to read The Very Hungry Caterpillar in several languages including English, Spanish French and Mandarin Chinese. Contact for more information.
