Charity Tuesday: Action for Children and The Very Hungry Caterpillar Giant Wiggle Day I don't about you but the Very Hungry Caterpillar was one of our favourite stories when my children were younger. In fact we still have a copy with its own caterpillar to wiggle through the pages. What I hadn't realised was that next March the book is celebrating 45 years (glad to know something is older than me!).
As part of the celebrations charity Action for Children hopes to get the under-5’s active and interacting more through a new national fundraising campaign starting on September 17th. The charity is encouraging children centres, nurseries and groups for the under-5’s across the country to host sponsored ‘Giant Wiggle’ walks on The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day, 20 March 2014, which is also the kick-off of the 45th anniversary celebration of this beloved children’s book.
