NPR's Neda Ulaby provides some particulars about a certain book, one I hope you have read at least once: first published in 1969, one sold every 30 seconds, nearly 50 million copies have been sold, translated into 62 languages

From Penguin Kids: The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been crawling its way into kids’ hearts for 50 years, and what better way to celebrate than by giving him a brand new cocoon! With a beautiful golden anniversary jacket (with an oversized “50” logo), along with a new introduction letter from Eric Carle himself, this anniversary edition will be sure to delight Caterpillar fans of all ages. Bonus content features an appreciation by prominent children’s literacy advocate Dolly Parton, as well as an essay on the history and significance of the Caterpillar, including rare images of the original sketches and historic photos.

Author Eric Carle, now 89, talks about the book in this 2-minute long video.

Here you can take a look inside the 50th anniversary edition.
