The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show at MAC Birmingham

[Ad-Review] Eric Carle’s, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” is one of those classic children’s stories that everyone loves. I have vivid memories of hearing the story as a child myself. I then enjoyed reading it to Mini when she was little. I love that it’s now one of her favourite books to read to Baby Mack. When we heard that MAC (Midlands Arts Centre), Birmingham were putting on The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show, we were very excited to be invited along.

We were up early on Sunday and travelled to Moreton Park for the event, arriving hungry and ready for breakfast.
