I am sure I’m not alone in my love of Eric Carle. With The Very Hungry Caterpillar turning 40 this year there is a veritable boom of products sporting the distinctive collages from the book.
One that has me all excited is the Eric Carle Decorative Prints set. It is collection of 12 prints from classic Carle titles (listed below) measuring 12″ by 16″. Since ours arrived my daughter and I have spent ages gazing at each picture deciding which to hang. They are printed on heavy weight paper which would easily stand up to being tacked to the wall if you don’t want to frame them. An excellent purchase for some budget art or even as thrifty gifts for the ever abundant toddler birthday parties!
The pack includes the covers of: The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Mixed Up Chameleon, 10 Little Rubber Ducks, Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother Too?, 1, 2, 3, to the Zoo: A Counting Book, Slowly, Slowly, Slowly, Said the Sloth. There are a couple of other pictures I couldn’t place as well as an alphabet and a numbers print.
RRP Â£15.99, Â£12.79 Amazon
As if all of that weren’t enough, he has also written a new book: Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do You See?
