Thank you Eric Carle

June 25, 1929 – May 23, 2021

I’m remembering Eric Carle today with deep appreciation. My own preschooler drew inspiration more than 20 years ago from Carle’s colorful paper art, engaging books, and guest appearance with Mister Rogers. I did too, and still do.

Beyond appreciating the beauty of Carle’s art, countless children have learned to count, sequence, recognize animals, retell a story; have learned about nutrition, color, the concept of a life cycle, and so much more through Carle’s tales of a hungry caterpillar, a brown bear, a quiet cricket and many other beloved characters.

Eric Carle’s gifts to children and parents are wonderful and timeless.
