About the Author:
Eric Carle is hailed and loved as the creator of brilliantly illustrated books and innovative design for very young children. His best-known work, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, has made its way into the hearts of literally millions of children around the world and has been translated into more than 25 languages and has sold more than twelve million copies. Since Caterpillar was published in 1969, Eric Carle has illustrated more than sixty books, many of the best sellers, most of whom he also wrote.
Born in Syracuse, New York, in 1929, Eric Carle moved with his parents to Germany when he was six years old; He was educated there and graduated from the prestigious art school, the Akademie der bildenden Kunste, in Stuttgart. But his dream was always to return to America, the land of his happiest memories of childhood. Then, in 1952, with a thin wallet in his hand and forty dollars in his pocket, he arrived in New York. He soon found a job as a graphic designer in the promotion department of The New York Times. Later, he was the art director of an advertising agency for many years.
One day, the respected educator and author, Bill Martin Jr., called to ask Carle to illustrate a story he had written. Martin's gaze had been caught by a striking image of a red lobster that Carle had created for an ad. Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see? It was the result of their collaboration. It is still a favorite among children all over the world. This was the beginning of Eric Carle's real career. Soon Carle was writing her own stories, too. His first totally original book was 1,2,3 for the Zoo, followed soon after by the famous classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Eric Carle's art is distinctive and instantly recognizable. His work of art is created in collage technique, using hand-painted papers, which he cuts and layers to form bright and cheerful images. Many of his books have an additional dimension: die-cut pages, twinkling lights like The Very Lonely Firefly, even the realistic sound of a cricket song like The Very Quiet Cricket, giving them a playful quality: a toy that can be read, a book that can be touched Children also enjoy working in the university and many send them photos that they have created, inspired by their illustrations. He receives hundreds of letters each week from his young admirers. The secret of the appeal of Eric Carle's books lies in his intuitive understanding and respect for children, who instinctively perceive in him someone who shares his most precious thoughts and emotions.
The themes of their stories generally come from their extensive knowledge and love of nature, an interest shared by most young children. In addition to being beautiful and entertaining, his books always offer the child the opportunity to learn something about the world around them. It is his interest in children, his feelings, and his curiosity, his creativity and his intellectual growth that, in addition to his beautiful work of art, makes the reading of his books an experience so stimulating and lasting.
Carle says: "With many of my books, I try to bridge the gap between home and school, and for me, the home represents or should represent: warmth, safety, toys, holding hands, being held back. a strange and new place for a child, will it be a happy place, will there be new people, a teacher, classmates, will they be friendly? I think the passage from home to school is the second biggest trauma of childhood, the first is, of course, to be born In fact, in both cases, we leave a place of warmth and protection for someone unknown.The unknown often brings fear.In my books, I try to counteract this fear, to replace it with a positive message. that child are naturally creative and eager to learn, I want to show them that learning is really fascinating and fun.
