Happy Birthday, Eric Carle!

Today is the 87th birthday of author/illustrator, Eric Carle. He uses hand-painted papers to create layered collages. The first book he illustrated was Bill Martin, Jr.'s classic, Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?

Soon after that he wrote and illustrated The Very Hungry Caterpillar, the most famous of his almost 70 books.

Several years ago, a first grade classroom at Yulupa colored their own papers and made collages of Eric Carle's creations. You can see them here.
