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?

AlternativesManufacturers are not required to label children's clothing with the precise chemicals used to make the garment flame resistant. The best way to avoid these chemicals is to purchase sleepwear that is labeled "not flame resistant" or "tight fitting" or to purchase 100 percent organic clothing. Organic clothing is not treated with flame-resistant chemicals, and you can buy sleepwear that is designed to be worn snugly instead of being chemically treated. There are a number of buyer's guides that compare specific models (see links below). In general, you will want to compare based on your needs and potential purchase's magnification. If you are looking to buy the binoculars for sporting events, then consider something with a wide view and low magnification, perhaps 6x35, as compared with the 8x30 useful for stargazing.. Cycle Jersey Refurbished models are available through the Brunton website with a 30-day money back guarantee, but with no warranty. The company also has a special overstock and discontinued section. Those models carry regular warranties.. The simple no-brainer of game-saving can become a nightmare when you realize you screwed up and have an out-of-date save file to load with. Or using 25 lock picks trying to open a level-5 lock, only to find some cloth? It is best to have at least three save files, and before you do anything dangerous or important, save over your oldest file. Alternating between three to five files will create a cycling effect, which in turn, ensures that you have organized, spaced-out save files to revert back to if you make an in-game mistake. Before embarking on a camping trip, thoroughly inspect your gear to make sure it is in proper working order. Make sure your tent has no holes and that you have adequate tent stakes and a ground cloth to pitch it. Make sure that you have working water filter, or verify that the campground you are staying in has water. Cycling Clothing Priming and PaintingHang the bicycle frame in an open area, such as your garage, where you can easily reach all areas of the frame to paint. Use a rust-resistant, metal primer to prime the frame. Allow the primer to dry completely before painting the frame, but avoid leaving more than two days between priming and painting, as primer is not designed for extended external exposure. Raise the sufferers feet higher than their head. Even on a hot day sufferers should be blanketed and kept warm. If the sufferer begins to vomit turn them on to their side.. You need to know the specific size of the head to fit the helmet properly. Get a cloth tape to measure the circumference of your head by placing the tape about one inch above the eyebrow and wrap the tape all the way around the head in an even line. Make sure to measure above the ears and not over the ears. commented on 05-Feb-2013 05:38 PM
