There's A Book

From Head to Toe by Eric Carle

Whimsical, colorful illustrations and simple text take readers into a world of movements and invites youngsters to mimic animal actions.

Eric Carle has a very active blog as well as a website. One of the gems I discovered while searching through it was this short video about the making of his most recent book, The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse (which is a gorgeous book by the way). I’d highly encourage watching the entire video. It’s only four minutes and shows some of his creative process as well as quite a bit of inspiration for those willing to view it. Enjoy!

  1. Looks fun. Is this from the same illustrator as Brown Bear?

    This is what you called art! So lovely!
    By the way, this is the first time I visit your page and I love it! Your theme is great!

    My 18 month old daughter loves all of Eric Carle’s other books and given the awards this book has won, I thought it would be a winner, too. Unfortunately, my daughter isn’t that interested in this book. Simple text “I am a good artist” with beautiful pictures – but I think for the younger toddler you need a book that is not only visually stimulating, but something that allows them to interact more – lift a flap or touch and feel books – may be more appropriate?

    Have a nice day,
