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?
