Very Hungry Caterpillar
March 12 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$5.00
Come to The Very Hungry Reader Tour! Meet Very Hungry Caterpillar, star of Eric Carle’s beloved book. Plus, with every purchase of an Eric Carle book in the month of March, his publisher (Penguin Random House) will donate a book to a child in need through First Book (up to 50,000 books).
Caterpillar will be here to meet and greet young fans, plus we’ll have fun activities and giveaways based on Eric Carle books. Photos are very welcome. (Please tag us if you share on social media!) We expect this to be a very popular event.
A word of advice: Not everyone has to be here at 3:00 on the dot–there will be less time spent standing in line with restless little ones if arrivals are staggered a bit. Caterpillar will be here until 5:00! Just be sure you arrive no later than 4:30.
A $5 family ticket is required for this event. One ticket covers admission for one adult and up to three kids. AND you can print out your ticket (or just show it on your mobile device) and redeem it at the sales counter for $5 off any in-stock purchase of $5 or more the day of the event! Scroll down to the Tickets section to purchase your ticket.
UPDATE: We don’t anticipate the snow in the forecast to affect this event, but if there is any change it will be announced here and on our Facebook page before 2:00pm.
