About this deal

For some retrospect, this book is up there in popularity with The Hobbit, The Catcher in the Rye, and dare I say, the Harry Potter series.

His picture book The Very Hungry Caterpillar, first published in 1969, has been translated into more than 66 languages and sold more than 50 million copies. Students chose an insect body (made by Roylco), put a chenille stick through the head for antennae and I fan folded their butterfly to insert though the slot in the body. Eric Carle was far more than an author and illustrator of children's books, as I came to appreciate by making this purchase. It was the first full-scale museum in the United States devoted to national and international picture book art.

As a child, Carle’s dad would take him for walks through meadows, memories which heavily influenced his illustrations. The scratching of textures is very effective and works well as the paints ChromaKidz and Chroma 2 have been specially formulated for this kind of project. I made a stand for the butterflies and caterpillars from wire embedded in plaster which the Preps painted in green tones. In contrast to the pain of publishing, he spoke of the meditative quality of glueing and painting his papers: “It’s like being in an alpha state: total peace. Children also enjoy working in collage and many send him pictures they have made themselves, inspired by his illustrations.

After the contest, the winning banner was hung alongside other submissions in Massachusetts before being exhibited in Children's Museums across the United States and Japan for the next three years.org) in Amherst, Massachusetts, a 40,000-square-foot space dedicated to the celebration of picture books and picture book illustrations from around the world, underscoring the cultural, historical, and artistic significance of picture books and their art form. On another day he will paint all the greens needed to create the grass, the leaves on the trees and a variety of plants etc.

In a world of Jeff Bezo’s and Jamie Dimon’s, not many business professionals are quick to discuss Eric Carle, the entrepreneur, but he very much in his own right was. Carle honored the winning class with a personal visit to their school, where he apparently created this doodle as a prize.A number of teachers have told me that they, too, have found that this book has lent itself to encourage language development. If students have not been introduced to the books and art of Eric Carle, read The Very Hungry Caterpillar or watch the animated video on YouTube. Carefully overlaying the pieces to create his illustration, he'd use wallpaper paste to hold the collage in place. She has an undergraduate degree in history from Hamilton College and a Masters in education from Bank Street College of Education. When he was ready to create a character or a scene, he'd draw it out in simple shapes onto tracing paper and then overlay the tracing paper on just the right piece of tissue paper.
