One hungry caterpillar is celebrating and you’re invited.

“The Very Hungry Caterpillar” is 50 years old. The timeless classic written by Eric Carle is celebrated at the Big Bear Lake Branch Library on Nov. 2. Crafts, games and stories are planned.

Kids of all ages are invited to the celebration from 2 to 3:30 p.m. The tale became a household name and popular children’s book. In celebration, for every 15 items checked out, customers will be entered to win Eric Carle-themed prizes.

The Big Bear Lake Branch Library is at 41930 Garstin Drive, Big Bear Lake. For more information, call 909-866-5571.
