Lila's Very Hungry Caterpillar Book Drive

One of Lila's favorite books is "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle, and that book just happens to be the selected book for the 2009 Read for the Record Campaign. On October 8, 2009, the Read for the Record campaign hopes to have 1 million children read this book.

We're hoping you'd like to help inquisitive little children like Lila discover the magic of Eric Carle's book. For every $10 raised, Jumpstart will donate a book to a child in a low-income area. Help us reach our goal of 25 books! Please visit our online book drive page and make a donation!

Enter the raffle to win a free copy of the book by doing one of these things! (Must be completed by 11:59 p.m. ET on October 9, 2009).
  • Just mention Lila's book drive on your blog/website and then leave a comment on this post with your URL.
  • Make a $10 donation or more through our book drive website by 11:59 p.m. ET on October 9, 2009 to be entered in the raffle!
  • Tweet this blog post! Be sure to include @hlw2 on your tweet!
  • Share this blog post on your Facebook page (and leave a comment here so we know you did that!)

On October 10th, we'll randomly select one blogger/donor/tweeter/FB Friend to win a free book! Thanks to everyone for your help!


  1. This is great - I re-tweeted and posted to one of my fan pages. I own 3 copies of The Very Hungry Caterpillar for use with my kids and in the classroom. I signed up to read the book on the 8th with my children.
