"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!
