Sophie and I had the pleasure of meeting The Very Hungry Caterpillar of writer Eric Carle fame. Well, not the real caterpillar. His understudy, if you will. Warwick’s Book Store – an independent bookstore located here in the beautiful beach community of La Jolla (in San Diego) – hosted a Very Hungry Caterpillar party for children. The event featured a meet-and-great with Mr. Caterpillar; storytelling of the famous book; caterpillar treats; and very cute take-away stickers, tattoos and coloring sheets.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Warwick’s Books. You can spend hours in the store – even the kid’s section is beautiful. And they have a great blog too. If you’re in San Diego – or planning a visit – go to this store! You won’t regret it; especially if you’re a reader.
While Sophie wasn’t too fond of the actual caterpillar, she had a wonderful time and left with a new book. It was a lovely afternoon!
