These are some pics from Eric Carle's 'Animals Animals'. Such a cool book full of poems and artwork. Look at the first poem - butterflies in the snow - yes that would be a wonderful sight! We also have Lewis Carroll's 'How Doth the Little Crocodile', and I love this Giraffe poem - 'Because. Because, because, that's why!' The last picture here is of some pages from The Very Hungry Caterpillar that I mod-podged onto a canvas to put on the walls of my daughter's room. I love this cheery sun and peaceful moon.
It is a dream of mine to go to this place - The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. It opened 10 years ago. The Museum has a collection of more than 10,000 picture book illustrations, 3 art galleries, an art studio, a theatre, educational programs, etc. It hosts storytimes, art classes, classes for educators, lectures, musicals, and rotating exhibits about different illustrators and book characters - right now there are some about Ezra Jack Keats and Maisy Mouse. HOW COOL IS THIS PLACE???!! If I lived in Massachusetts I would totally go there all the time with my kids and if I was still teaching you know I would totally be rocking the class field trips there every year!
