More About 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?
Classic favorite  Jun 3, 2008
This book goes in and out of favor with my daughter, but the fact that at different stages she finds it engaging is what really makes this a great classic book. We started reading this to her at 3 months. She could follow along in the story and be engaged at 6 months. And even now at 18 months, she's saying the fruit names, putting her finger in the holes and paying attention to the story line. This is a MUST GET book for any child!
Good Book  Jun 2, 2008
This is a favorite of mine. We did a puppet show and the kids had a blast. They never get tired to listening to it and hearing about all the foods the caterpillar ate.
Nice book  May 29, 2008
It's a book full of fun. But the size might be too small for a little baby.
One of my son's favorite books to read  May 25, 2008
I recommend this book to everyone with a young child. My son loves to read it several times a day along with the soft caterpillar stuffed toy. It's great because it teaches children colors, numbers and simply explains the process of how a caterpillar becomes a butterfly.
