happy birthday, eric carle

"The unknown often brings fear with it. In my books I try to counteract this fear, to replace it with a positive message. I believe that children are naturally creative and eager to learn. I want to show them that learning is really both fascinating and fun.” -Eric Carle

For as long as I can remember, I've been enjoying the work of Eric Carle... first as a child, then as an educator and finally with my own children.  I look forward to one day sharing my love of his books and artwork with my grandchildren.

Today marks his 82nd birthday.  Happy birthday, Mr. Carle.  May it be a memorable one.  Thank you for years and years of happy moments and smiles.

BONUS: Printable Eric Carle coloring pages! Yay!! Enjoy!
