Spring seems to finally be coming to the Midwest. How can you talk about spring without reading at least one Eric Carle book? Especially if you have a child under eight.
Eric Carle has many wonderful books and a great author web page. His web page includes a list of his books, a link to his biography, and downloads. His downloads include how to make his tissue paper illustrations and his Caterpillar Express Newsletter where he answers many questions. Great information. I have also created a Pinterest Board with various activities I have found around the web. We have quite a collection of his books here.

Enjoy Eric this month. This is the last month of authors for this year. I am thinking about starring different authors next year.
