Eric Carle - Picture Book Illustrator Extraordinaire!

Angela Morris - Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Eric Carle is known for his striking collage illustrations.  Many of the books he illustrated  are considered children’s classics - “Brown Bear, Brown Bear” by Bill Martin Jr., “The Very Lonely Firefly”, and “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” among many others.  Recently I heard a great interview with Eric Carle on NPR and he was talking about children, their artwork and how they should not be taught to “color in the lines”.  This is a concept that some of us have trouble with – knowing when it is the right time to teach children that there is a “right” way of doing things, but also that it is important for them to be free to create in their own way.  You can listen to this interview at:  If you were to ask young children what it is about Eric Carle’s illustrations that appeals to them (and they were able to articulate it) I think they would say that the colors are vibrant and the style is informal and abstract – qualities that often come through in children’s artwork.


Eric Carle was born in the United States but is of German descent and lived in Germany for many years during World War II.  When he was a boy he saw the stylized images and unconventional colors of the German expressionist artists and was particularly impressed with the artwork of Franz Marc.  Eric Carle’s latest book, “The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse”, illustrates how Franz Marc influenced his style in a series of boldly colored animal images.  In the back of the book he shows Franz Marc’s own Blue Horse, so we can easily see the idea that became his own trademark style - colorful animals.


North Central Regional Library has MANY of Eric Carle’s books, so please CHECK THEM OUT!  If you would like more information about Eric Carle or the Eric Carle Museum of Children’s Art go to these web links:    has coloring pages, a newsletter from Eric Carle and merchandise for sale.   explore Eric Carle’s website devoted to his museum, read articles and blogs in children’s literature, and see what exhibits are being shown at the Amherst, Massachusetts museum.


What’s your or your kids’ favorite Eric Carle book?

Kenny Dalglish accepts he is yet to extract the best from Jordan Henderson since he arrived at Anfield in the summer, but has no doubt Liverpool will reap the benefit of his future years.The 21-year-old England U21 international has struggled to nail down a regular starting position in the Reds side since his £20million move from Sunderland.The size of the fee and the lack of a consistent position in the team has seen the midfielder struggle at times to display his best form, but Dalglish insists it's only a matter of time before Henderson comes good."I don't know his best position yet - but I know his best club and that's this one," said the Liverpool boss. "We just want him to play and enjoy playing.He's a talented footballer with a great future in front of him and we are just delighted he chose to come here. He'll be here for a long, long time and he's going to be a tremendous asset for us."Henderson has had to settle for a place on the bench in Liverpool's last two Barclays Premier League encounters against Everton and Manchester United.But the suspension of fellow midfielder Lucas Leiva for the game against Norwich on Saturday, could well provide him with a route back into the team."He's a young boy who has come down from Sunderland and is starting to settle in really well now," Dalglish added."He's another option for us in midfield this weekend. I've just got to make the right decision."

Royston Drenthe believes "hungry" Real Madrid have more chance of success than last season's treble winners Barcelona.Much is expected of Madrid this term following their massive summer outlay on players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Xabi Alonso and Karim Benzema, but it remains to be seen just how quickly and how well all the new faces gel.In comparison to Madrid's radical overhaul, Barca have so far only made a couple of signings, bringing in Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Maxwell to complement the squad that won an unprecedented Champions League, Primera Division and Copa del Rey treble last season.That would suggest Pep Guardiola's all-conquering side will continue to go from strength to strength, but while Drenthe concedes Barca will be powerful again, he feels Madrid can do better."They (Barca) have a lot of quality but we are Madrid and that's that. We have to be optimistic. I think that Madrid this year are going to have more options than Barca, because we are going to have more hunger than them," said Drenthe."If the fans saw us train, they'd be impressed. We have an incredible hunger."We need to work very hard to achieve it, but at the least you have to try. There are a lot of very good teams but Madrid are Madrid and we have to get back to being the biggest. We have the quality to be able to fight for everything."I can't promise anything, but I'm going to give it everything to win many titles. I want to fulfil my dream of winning the Champions League. The Champions League and World Cup have been my dreams since I was a kid."Although he was tipped as one of the players likely to be moved on by Madrid to make room for the club's new signings, Drenthe has featured in all six pre-season matches so far and looks set to battle it out for the left-back slot next term.Should the Dutchman claim that position as his own then it would mark an impressive turnaround for the 22-year-old, who last season suffered at the hands of his own supporters at the Bernabeu.Drenthe insists that is all behind him now, saying: "That episode was one of the saddest of my life, but it's already totally forgotten. When they whistled me at the Bernabeu I was afraid the fans would then start shouting at me on the street."I thought they were angry with me, but just the opposite happened. Everyone was good to me. I'm very grateful for that."He added in Marca: "I'm the same Royston Drenthe as always, but it's true that now I'm very happy at the club. And that's not just because of the last few games, it's for everything."I came to Madrid to succeed and I feel that this is going to be my season. I'm going to show the fans who Royston Drenthe is and that I can be successful here."

For example, a hook-based anti-spyware application cannot defeat a kernel-based keylogger (as the keylogger will receive the keystroke messages before the anti-spyware application), but it could potentially defeat hook and API-based keyloggers. Scan your system with anti-spyware software. And, the assault of computer keylogger is one such threat, which tracks your necessary information through keystrokes.wifi keylogger9 million machines in the United States were infected with keyloggers of one kind or another, putting as much as $24 billion in bank account assets and probably much more literally at the fingertips of fraudsters.
