Publishers Description
Finally, here's a brand-new book in Eric Carle's extraordinarily popular Very series. And with a new surprise When a little click beetle falls onto his back, he seeks the help of a wise old click beetle. ?Look at me, ? says the more experienced click beetle, giving a loud CLICK and flipping onto its feet. But try as he might, the clumsy little click beetle just can't get the hang of it--or can he? In the tradition of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Carle creates a winning story of perseverance and pride in achievement complete with an ingenious fiber-optic microchip that truly gives voice to the valiant little beetle as it CLICKs its way through the colorful pages and somersaults into your heart.

More About Eric Carle, Patricia Lee Gauch & Eric Carle

Eric Carle The secret of Eric Carle’s books’ appeal lies in his intuitive understanding of and respect for children, who sense in him instinctively someone who shares their most cherished thoughts and emotions.

The themes of his stories are usually drawn from his extensive knowledge and love of nature—an interest shared by most small children. Besides being beautiful and entertaining, his books always offer the child the opportunity to learn something about the world around them. It is his concern for children, for their feelings and their inquisitiveness, for their creativity and their intellectual growth that, in addition to his beautiful artwork, makes the reading of his books such a stimulating and lasting experience.

Eric Carle has received many distinguished awards and honours for his work, including, in 2003, the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for his lifetime contribution to children's literature and illustration.

Carle says: “With many of my books I attempt to bridge the gap between the home and school. To me home represents, or should represent; warmth, security, toys, holding hands, being held. School is a strange and new place for a child. Will it be a happy place? There are new people, a teacher, classmates—will they be friendly?

I believe the passage from home to school is the second biggest trauma of childhood; the first is, of course, being born. Indeed, in both cases we leave a place of warmth and protection for one that is unknown. The unknown often brings fear with it. In my books I try to counteract this fear, to replace it with a positive message. I believe that children are naturally creative and eager to learn. I want to show them that learning is really both fascinating and fun.”

Eric Carle has two grown-up children, a son and a daughter. With his wife Barbara, he divides his time between the Florida Keys and the hills of North Carolina.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Interesting topic  Dec 16, 2007
I love bugs and I thought this was a perfect and unique book to read to my daughter. She enjoyed it a lot. The book makes the clicking sound at the end and I like that the pages of the book are a lot thicker than normal books. I still prefer Eric Carle's other works.
Another great one by the great Eric Carle!  Sep 10, 2007
In the world of children's books.....this guy is king! (and no, I'm not getting paid to say this :D) I'm such a huge fan of this talented author who has generated a plethora of extremely appealing concept books - all with eye-catching illustrations and entertaining features. This one has a clicking noise that comes at a pivotal point of the story (oh man, I hope I didn't just spoil this for any of you). How appropriate for this little click beetle who spends the entire book trying to learn to click and flip (rough life, huh? But, who am I to argue with survival mechanisms?). This book is more than just clicks though. There is a wonderful theme of perseverance running throughout this story, vivid illustrations that make you want to run your fingers over and over them, lots and lots and lots of repetition (yes, even though this can drive adults absolutely CRAZY, kids thrive on it). Also, Carle's books typically include a grammar lesson (shhhh.....don't tell the kids). Here we have so many wonderful verbs introduced by the supporting characters: a turtle who ambles, a snail who slithers, a mouse who scurries. Who else but Carle could make the story of a simple click beetle beautiful and fascinating? Do me a favor. Buy every one of his books and keep them on your bookshelves forever. Your future nature-loving child will someday thank you for it.
He loves the "kick beetle"  Jul 10, 2007
My two year old son LOVES this book. He likes to read along and make the CLICK sound by himself on each page. Towards the end when the book makes the clicking sound he gets all excited. He wants to read this book everyday. Even if he's crying I'll pull out this book and he'll run and sit down next to me to read it. We're big fans of Eric Carle and have 5 of his other books with two more on the way! The message in this book is wonderful. The other animals offer encouragement, the wise old click beetle offers guidance, and the very clumsy click beetle never gives up. Great book!
Another favorite of mom's  May 6, 2007
I like that this story encourages "trying again". When you're 2 the day can be fraught with little failures. What better role model to have than a very persistent click beetle?
If at first you don't succeed, try try again!  Dec 2, 2005
The valuable take-away lesson of this book is "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again." My three year old loves this book. We have borrowed it again and again from the library this year. When the beetle finally succeeds at flipping over after many failures, he makes a clicking sound as he does it, which delights my son. We are big Eric Carle fans.
