Just the facts

Over at Mental Floss, a recent post celebrated the world of children’s books with 19 Fun Facts! We often don’t think about (or know) the stories behind the stories, so this was an eye opener on many fronts.

For example, did you know that Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar was almost called A Week with Willi Worm ? Would it have been as popular?  Maybe, but I guess we’ll never know. Stop by the link above to see more of the wacky and interesting facts you never knew about children’s books. And thanks to the people at Mental Floss for the entertaining article!
