Enid blyton poem caterpillar and the butterfly
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric CarleFormer president George W. Bush named this his favorite book from childhood (it came out when he was 23 ... but perhaps he meant his kids childhood). In any event its one of my favorites from my childhood, and from reading to my own kids. Was it the first to put holes through its pages? Probably not, but it worked very well. Kids like sticking their fingers in things - genius!
Anyhow - this is one HUNGRY caterpillar! He puts a hole through everything be it a slice of watermelon (or wacca menon as my daughter first said it), ice cream cone, or sausage.
It is in fact one of the bestselling books in the history of literature!
So what does this epic teach us?
1/ Everything in moderation. Our caterpillar just sticks a single hole in each food item - he aint that sort of greedy, hell leave some for others.
2/ Try new things. Our caterpillar aint picky, hell try anything once, even gherkin!
3/ Eat healthy to avoid stomach ache. A nice green leaf will sort you out.
4/ Change is good. Straighten up and fly right and you too could become a beautiful butterfly and... um ... fly, right!

September is WorldKidLit Month. This is a month to celebrate, discover, and discuss the state of literature for children and teens in translation. The important and welcome Marsh and Batchelder prizes have, for the most part, celebrated works from a narrow list of languages. The excellent project OutsideInWorld lists only five titles for all ages from the whole continent of Africa. Reviews, according to Maureen White , have focused overwhelmingly on works translated from French and German. Additional suggests will be warmly received; hopefully we can make a broader-tent list for WorldKidLit
