Eric Carle

This week we learned about the author and illustrator Eric Carle.  He is best known for his book       The Very Hungry Caterpillar which has sold over 33 million copies!!  We talked about how most of the books we read have a separate author and illustrator, but Eric Carle is unique because he does both!   We read a few of his books and discussed how similar his illustrations are in each of his books.

Did you know Eric Carle got his start in children's books when author Bill Martin Jr. asked him to illustrate his very famous book, Brown Bear,    Brown Bear, What Do You See?
