A Literary Feast

I told my daughter I didn’t want a birthday cake this year, as I’m trying to not eat sugar. The day arrived for my party and before I was allowed into the kitchen, I was told I needed to read a book to the kids. Great! I’m a librarian AND a Gramma, so that’s what I do! I was handed a copy of The Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle and at it’s conclusion, I was led–eyes closed–into the kitchen. There was spread out a feast to please even the hungriest caterpillar! Each item was labelled with what the caterpillar ate that day, and progressed through to his tasty green leaf at the end of the week as a digestive aid. The centerpiece “cake” was a “fruit” cake, of course!
