We love this book around here. It is also a good one for learning a foreign language. We've learned how to say a lot of different food names in Hebrew.

There a museum: The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art...I've been itching to go there, but it's in Amherst, MA. The only reason to go there is you happen to be in the area at Smith, Mt. Holyoke, Amherst or one of the other gazillion colleges in the area. Maybe one day...


This posting makes me so happy. He hugged a book. I know that feeling.

I hugged a book once too. I can't recall which one it was. I think it was Tayari Jones' The Untelling or The Secret Life of Bees...or The Interruption of Everything by Terry McMillan.

I love Eric Carle. I read that book to my special ed students and they love it. They love when I use the interactive pieces when reading the book. I also enjoy his other books as well, especially the very quiet cricket because it makes noise at the end.

@Miriam: co-sign, my son's Spanish teacher, Ms. Miriam coincidentally, used this as one of the books to teach food names in Spanish.
