Eric Carle

We are very lucky to have a number of Eric Carle titles on our book shelf and it being his birthday today, I thought it would be fun to share a few posts that I have previously written about his books.

One of my favourite posts here at Love and Lollipops is about  "Heart Stories". I used Eric Carle's wonderful title, The Tiny Seed, to share more about the idea of a story being something that can touch, teach, inspire and heal. Big One and I had so much fun creating our own version of Eric Carle's special tissue paper and then he recreated a beautiful picture from the book.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is often written about by Mommy bloggers and I never tire of seeing the crafts inspired by this famous book. I gave a copy of the book to my nephew this past Christmas and sewed this Book Buddy to go along with the story. 

And lastly, Big One came up with this lovely idea of a cloud puppet, inspired by the simplistic, yet fun book, Little Cloud.

Kate at An Amazing Child is celebrating Eric Carle's birthday with a blog hop. I have joined in the fun and linked up these ideas. Pop on over to see what other creative bloggers have contributed to this collection of Eric Carle crafts and activities.
