Die Abbildungen sind toll ausgewählt, man bekommt wirklich einen schönen Einblick in das Leben eines außergewöhnlichen Künstlers.by Carle (Cleveland and New York: Wiliams Collins + World Publishing Company, 1978), pages 24 and 25.

Prior to the mid-1980s, Carle used commercially available, pre-dyed papers, the colors of which quickly faded. Amanda Hilburn is an artist who works primarily in acrylics, but also enjoys mixed media and watercolors inspired by the simple, stunning, artistry of nature; animals, flowers, water and more.

Over a career spanning more than half a century, Eric Carle produced a string of classic American picture books, illustrated in his distinctive collage style.Now I use the thinnest paper I can find which happens to be the paper on the roll for bulletin boards.

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.

And I think that Eric Carle was a person who listened to children and influenced them to tell stories of their own.

The theme of ‘change’ is a perennial one in primary school, and for Prep students, caterpillars to butterflies along with Eric Carle’s ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ is a wonderful inspiration for art lessons.
