Happy Birthday, Eric Carle

posted in: Uncategorized | 1
June 25th is Eric Carle’s birthday–and a great time to check out some of the books from the beloved author and illustrator’s long career. You probably know Carle as the creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar (1969), but did you know that his very next book was also about food? Pancakes, Pancakes (1970) is the story of Jack, who must gather eggs from the chickens and milk from the cow before he can learn how to make delicious pancakes (with his mother’s help, of course). In recent years, Carle has published books about kangaroos, fireflies, chamelons, seahorses and even rubber ducks (10 Little Rubber Ducks, 2005).
