Celebrate Eric Carle

I went to Google this morning to look up some information and the logo was decorated with Very Hungry Catepillar designs. I clicked it and found the following article. I love Eric Carle and strongly encourage you to add his books to your child’s library. Many of his books are now even available as board books.

It began with a stack of paper and a hole-puncher.

“I was just innocently playing around at my desk,” Eric Carle recalls on the 40th anniversary of his most popular picture book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

A gentle fable for the preschool set, with holes as if eaten by a caterpillar, it has sold more than 29 million copies and been translated into 47 languages. It continues to sell about 650,000 copies a year.

Carle, 79, says his original idea was A Week With Willi Worm, featuring a green bookworm that grew fatter and fatter. It ended with a lament: “Poor Willi.”

At the time, Carle had done only two books. In what would become his trademark style — brightly painted tissue-paper collages — he had illustrated Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr., and his own wordless counting book, 1, 2, 3 to the Zoo.
