His first wholly original book was 1,2,3 to the Zoo , followed soon afterward by the celebrated classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar .

Since the Caterpillar was published in 1969, Eric Carle has illustrated more than sixty books, many best sellers, most of which he also wrote. We shared the book “The Mixed Up Chameleon” by Eric Carle where the chameleon wanted to be like other animals but after becoming like each one and getting mixed up, decided it was actually great being himself after all. This is OK as long as they can scratch some textures on the wet paint using the milk bottle combs and other tools. Our projects rotated from Day and Night pastel drawings, Build Your Own Environment using found objects (recycled items donated to the museum by guests – they had tons!First step is to paint a colour all over using the big paint brushes, then while the paint is still wet scratch textures using the plastic tools made of milk bottles, cardboard, plastic forks or simple using erasers. Preps made a branch from twisted tissue paper and stuck leaves on a background paper then cut out their chameleon and glued onto the branch. He used bright colors to paint tissue paper and then cut pieces from that tissue paper to create collages. 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. The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art is a museum devoted to the art of the picture book and especially the children's book.

At the time of creating, AccessArt checked all links to ensure content is appropriate for teachers to access. When the paper has dried separate the painted paper from the newspaper, insert a flat hand between the two pieces of paper and gently separate them. Discuss the idea of illustration with older students, in a simple way, how to combine words and pictures.Together with his wife Barbara, Eric Carle, the author and illustrator of more than 70 books, including the 1969 classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar, founded the museum. 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. It was the first full-scale museum in the United States devoted to national and international picture book art.

It is his concern for children, for their feelings and their inquisitiveness, for their creativity and their intellectual growth that, in addition to his beautiful artwork, makes the reading of his books such a stimulating and lasting experience. From Carle’s own words and pictures, and from the remembrances and essays of others, readers can piece together their own picture of an artist who is idealistic and compassionate as well as abundantly gifted. Now I use the thinnest paper I can find which happens to be the paper on the roll for bulletin boards. To achieve this, arrange the desks in groups of 4 or 5 room set up (1) covered with small sheets of newspaper or soft plastic tablecloths.Show a picture of the artist, read one of his books and briefly talk about his life and his art work. Carle's illustrations were collages created out of painted tissue paper that accompanied simple and often repeating lines. Or I put paint on a piece of carpet, sponge, or burlap and then use that like a stamp on my tissue papers to create different textures. The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been translated into more than 70 languages and sold more than 55 million copies, and has been impactful in book publishing and in popular culture. So often they are told no, or given a pacifier ( figuratively or literally) by adults in their lives.
