The Very Hungry Caterpillar placemat makes for one of many ideal personalized children’s gifts for your child at MyChronicleBooks. Rendered from the same iconic artwork that made this story a classic, the hungry caterpillar strikes again as he finds himself chomping on some of his favorite fruits. Gobbling up first one apple, two pears, three plums and more, the over-eager caterpillar makes his way through mealtime much like you want your little tyke to do. Add your child’s name to this durable placement and watch him gobble his dinner too. A lively and colorful companion to children’s personalized books, your child will delight seeing his or her name on this and the many personalized children’s gifts we have to offer.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar—A Winner At Mealtime
Eric Carle’s classic story of the hungry caterpillar that eats more and more food can’t help but encourage positive eating habits, from eating his or her first finger food with the placemat’s pile of fruit as backdrop, to sandwiches and full meals as your little one grows. Voted #2 in a children’s books 2012 School Library Journal survey, you will love giving both the caterpillar placemat and all the personalized children’s gifts with the same colorful graphics that match.
So perfect is the parallel between the hungry caterpillar and promoting good eating habits, The Very Hungry Caterpillar will be one of the first children’s personalized books you will want to select. Using unique collage illustrations, the story promotes several educational ideas beyond eating: counting, the days of the week, and even the life stages of a butterfly will delight children and parents alike.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Personalized Children’s Gifts
In addition to this delightful placemat, expand your caterpillar collection by giving companion gifts with the same Eric Carle theme and colorful graphics such as:
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Lunch Box: Treat your child to this durable personalized lunch box with his or her name and the caterpillar on the cover. Filled with nutritious foods and maybe a cupcake, leave an endearing message on the chalkboard inside. Lunch box also doubles as a great supplies caddy, filled with crayons and paper, even toys, whichever your little one prefers.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Journal: Record all of baby’s first year notables in this lovely journal including handprints, footprints, birth weight, first photograph and more.

Two Caterpillar Placemat Designs
There are actually two designs to choose from- the fruit picture shown above, and the image from the Caterpillar lunch box with a large caterpillar on top of rainbow dots. You get to choose when you click into the personalization options.
We purchased both designs almost four months ago, and they've held up pretty well. We've followed the care instructions to hand wash. The edges curl a little, but I think this is because my 2.5 year-old daughter plays with them. I've caught her rolling the edges when she was supposed to be finishing dinner.
She loves seeing her name on the placemat, and it gives us the opportunity to go over the letters in her name in a fun way!
