Every baby born at the Cayuga Birth Place receives the iconic board book, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar," tucked into a useful canvas bag along with a pamphlet full of ideas for families to Talk, Sing, Read, and Play with their infants to develop their early literacy skills. Families who adopt, host foster children, or have a home birth receive the set from their pediatrician.
