Of course Eric Carle is such a well-loved author and illustrator. He even has a museum dedicated to his art! But even with how famous he is, I am still finding new books of his to enjoy. I always knew about The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? And I’ve mentioned 1, 2, 3 To the Zoo and Pancakes, Pancakes! But we have recently been enjoying some Carle books that I had never heard about.
The Secret Birthday Message. Strawberry loves this one. It has cutouts and a code to decipher and a secret passage. What’s not to love??
The Mixed-Up Chameleon. A chameleon discovers that although it seems like it would be fun to be someone else, he is happiest being himself.
The Very Busy Spider. Blueberry received this one as a gift. The spiderweb has a textured surface, so it’s kind of a touch and feel book.
The Greedy Python. Strawberry thinks the ending is funny. 🙂
Little Cloud. Fun with cloud shapes.
Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too? Stories about babies are always a hit with my kids.
10 Little Rubber Ducks. Based on a true story, ten ducks are thrown from a ship and go their separate ways.
What are your favorite Eric Carle Books?
