The Very Quintet
The Very Hungry Caterpillar is about hope. You, like the little caterpillar, will grow up, unfold your wings, and fly off into the future.
The Very Busy Spider is about work. We need to work and finish our tasks despite our many distractions.
The Very Quiet Cricket is about love. Crickets and people alike go in search of a suitable mate.
The Very Lonely Firefly is about belonging. We all want to belong to a group, a family, and our own fellow creatures.
The Very Clumsy Click Beetle is about persistence. Each of us faces some obstacles in life, but we need to try and try again until we overcome the challenges.
Very Eric Carle: A Very Hungry, Quiet, Lonely, Clumsy, Busy Exhibit was co-organized by Children's Museum of Pittsburgh and The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art.
